Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has announced that she will release her latest album, ‘The Mosaic Of Transformation’, later this year through Ghostly. The first track released from the record is the ten minute ‘Expanding Electricity’.

“I guess, in one sentence, this album is my expression of love and appreciation for electricity”, says Smith. While writing and recording the album, she explains, she drew inspiration from a routine of daily physical movement which resulted in her discovering what she calls “a visual language … as a reference for how frequencies can be visualised”.

“The inspiration came to me in a sudden bubble of joy”, she goes on. “It was accompanied by a multitude of shapes that were moving seamlessly from one into the other. My movement practice has been a constant transformation piece by piece. I made this album in the same way. Every day I would transform what I did yesterday into something else. This album has gone through about twelve different versions of itself”.

‘The Mosaic Of Transformation’ is out on 15 May. Listen to ‘Expanding Electricity’ here:
