Come April 11, Daedelus (a.k.a. Alfred Darlington) will drop his twelfth full-length album, Bespoke, on the Ninja Tune label. Daedelus, who is known for his Victorian Era apparel as well as his electronic music, is also part of the groups Adventure Time and The Long Lost.
The new album’s title, he says, is both a reflection of the disc’s contents and his outlook on life, meaning it’s possible for the Los Angeles-bred artist to grow as a musician without having to settle into being part of a cookie-cutter genre.
A few weeks before the album’s release, Daedelus will drop a new single, “Tailor-Made,” featuring Milosh w/ Floating Points + Tokimonsta Remixes. The March 21 release can be downloaded here. The forthcoming album will also feature as guests Inara George, Young Dad, Busdriver, Kelela Mizanekristos and Baths. The album can be pre-ordered from Ninja Tune.
