Daniel Avery will release his new album, ‘Ultra Truth’, later this year. The record features guest vocal contributions from Haai, Sherelle, AK Paul, Marie Davidson, Kelly Lee Owens, James Massiah and HTRK’s Jonnine Standish.

“’Ultra Truth’ finds me in a different place to where I’ve been before”, he says. “My previous albums have all focused on the idea of music being an escape or a distraction from the world but that’s not the case this time. For me, this album is about looking directly into the darkness, not running away from it”.

“There’s a way through these times but it involves keeping the important people in your life close to you and navigating the noise together”, he goes on. “This is an intentionally heavy and dense album, the hooks often hidden in dusty corners. I’m no longer dealing in a misty-eyed euphoria. ‘Ultra Truth’ is a distorted fever dream of a record: riled, determined and alive”.

“I’m working with an entirely new world of sound on this record”, he continues. “Every single influence from the last decade spent on the road plays a part. Things that have been in the back of my mind forever, warped, distorted and pushed to a new place”.

‘Ultra Truth’ will be out on 4 Nov. Watch the video for first single, ‘Chaos Energy’, featuring Kelly Lee Owens and Haai, here:
