Listen: Floating Points shares new single ‘Vocoder’

Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points has today shared a new single, ‘Vocoder’ which is out now via Ninja Tune.

Around the release of his celebrated album Crush, Resident Advisor said of Floating Points, “in the line of preternaturally talented producers to emerge from the UK in the last decade, Sam Shepherd is the preeminent renaissance man”. This point was further proven with the release of one of last year’s most beloved records, Promises. An historic release composed by Shepherd and recorded alongside Pharoah Sanders & the London Symphony Orchestra, Promises topped end of year lists everywhere including #1 spots from The Guardian (Contemporary), TIME Magazine, The New York Times (Jazz), Mojo, The Vinyl Factory and more. His eagerly awaited first new music since Promises, today’s release marks another twist in the career of one of the world’s most surprising, inventive and talented producers.
