Coming later in February is a new album from Jeff Mills titled The Clairvoyant. Inspired by the rise of claimed psychics after World War I and the end of the Spanish Flu pandemic, he seeks to tell a detailed story with his latest endeavor. The vinyl release will contain 15 tracks across three LPs, and the digital version of the album will contain a bonus track titled “From The Mind’s Eye.”
In an effort to enhance the mystical nature of the album, in a press release, Mills shared specific instructions on how one should listen to the album. Describing it as something similar to a seance, he recommends users create a low-lit, quiet environment to get the full effect out of the music.
“The album plays in the way of a metaphysical seance and should be listened to in a darkened, candle-lit room, Mills wrote. “A silent space, free of outside noise, chatter or talking, and other visual distractions. The album should be listened in full – from beginning to end.”
Mills has kept busy as of late. Earlier in the month, he announced his new media effort, The Escape Velocity Magazine. In addition to the aforementioned publication, back in the fall, he teamed up with Jean-Phi Dary for a new electronic jazz project, The Paradox.
The Clairvoyant by Jeff Mills is slated for release on Friday, February 26th on his own Axis Records. You can learn more about the upcoming release and purchase a copy for yourself via the label website.
