Squarepusher releases new single, Vortrack

By | Published on Thursday 21 November 2019


Squarepusher has released the first single from his upcoming ninth album ‘Be Up A Hello’. The new track, ‘Vortrack’, marks Tom Jenkinson’s return to his Squarepusher alias after nearly five years.

Following the release of his 2015 album ‘Damogen Furies’, Jenkinson threw himself into various other projects, including the band Shobaleader One – reworking Squarepusher tracks into a jazz-funk style – plus soundtracking a TV show on CBeebies designed to calm toddlers the fuck down and composing an album of songs on a big organ.

But now he’s back as Squarepusher, with ‘Vortrack’, which kicks down the doors and screams his return. Metaphorically. No property was actually damaged as far as I know. Out digitally now, the track will be available on vinyl, backed with his own Fracture Remix, on 6 Dec. The album will follow on 31 Jan.

There will be tour dates too. Here are all the UK shows:

13 May: Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
14 May: Brighton, Concorde 2
15 May: London, Roundhouse
