SBTKRT has just released a new project, titled SAVE YOURSELF.
The album will be his first since 2014’s Wonder Where We Land, and follows a stream of sporadic releases from SBTKRT. In the past week, he has released two singles off SAVE YOURSELF. The first is “Good Morning,” a collaboration with The Dream that you can read about here, while “I Feel Your Pain” is a jazz jam that features D.R.A.M. and singer Mabel.
In a recent statement, SBTKRT briefly spoke of these collaborations and how they have shaped the album. Read the quote below and the full statement here.
“Though as SBTRKT I am one person, I’ve always tried to champion the idea of bringing together artists who are from different places both musically and geographically.
For this record I worked with a small group of collaborators, most of whom I had not collaborated with before. Instead of an open-ended collaboration where studio jam sessions would lead to songs, I approached collaborators who I felt would be most suited to the overall ideas I had already collated.
To me it feels similar to my first album — a small group of vocalists, productions that are fairly stripped down and a project filled with emotion. These songs are what I feel to be the most interesting musical stories I’ve made to date.
SBTKRT also released a brief animated short for the project, which can be seen below. His last album, 2014’s Wonder Where We Land, featured the same eclectic sound and exciting collaborations that can be found on SAVE YOURSELF. He teamed up with artists such as Sampha, Ezra Koenig, A$AP Ferg, Jessie Ware, Warpaint and Caroline Polache to create a unique sound that truly cannot be found anywhere else.
SAVE YOURSELF is available now. Check out the album art and complete track listing below.
