Four Tet continues release streak with ‘Teenage Birdsong’
Four Tet has had a big year. He unveiled new music to rave reviews at an Anna Liber Lewis exhibition, got the Nelly Furtado sample he needed cleared to finally release “Only Human,” and scored a top slot at Coachella‘s Mojave stage. Following up the triumphant arrival of “Only Human,” the Grammy-nominated artist dropped off a brand new ID fans had been waiting for after his Coachella Weekend 1 performance: “Teenage Birdsong.”
“Teenage Birdsong” is Four Tet at its finest, conjuring a shimmering soundscape out of buzzing synths and jazzy flute accents. It embraces the more fluid electronica side of the producer’s production spectrum—and may or may not be a glimpse into what his upcoming LP might sound like, per recent Tweets about having finished a few songs for the project. Four Tet’s last album was 2017’s New Energy.
