The wait is over. After a fair amount of anticipation and speculation, the Four Tet produced Omar Souleyman album is set for release later this month. Available in all formats (Vinyl, CD, MP3 and Tape) you can pre-order the LP via the Ribbon website right now (if you do, there’s a poster in it for you as well).
Whilst it might be common knowledge that Omar Souleyman handed over production duties for the album to Kieran Hebden, this is also technically his first studio album. Following on from several compilations and live recordings, ‘Wenu Wenu’ will mark the Syrians first real spell in any kind of recording space.
Check out the album opener and lead single below. An amalgamation of the middle eastern sounds we are used to hearing from the former wedding entertainer and the modern production methods of Hebden, this is one release not to be missed.
