Paul Kalkbrenner reveals first single off forthcoming album, ‘Parts Of Life’
Paul Kalkbrenner has announced his eighth studio album, Parts Of Life. The LP, set to be released May 18, comes a decade after Kalkbrenner’s astounding full-length Berlin Calling, and feels greatly akin to its definitively grand techno, particularly the celebrated track “Sky and Sound.”
Parts of Life also serves as the next installment in his Back To The Future trilogy, which chronicles the arrival of techno in Berlin in the late ’80s. Now, succinctly encapsulating the era’s raw ethos, Kalkbrenner’s shared its first single and video for “Part Three.” Minimal and with the potential to reign in an era of new club cornerstones for Kalkbrenner, “Part Three” is big and joyful, a seemingly timeless record marked by the inventive invigoration that’s come to define the artist and alludes to astonishing new material just down the road.
