Free Download: A.M.A. Remixed By Susanne Sundfør

Maps – aka James Chapman – releases a brand new single on 24 June 2013.

A.M.A.’, the first single and opening track from the new album Vicissitude (out on 8 July 2013) is available as a limited edition 12” vinyl and download.

The digital download features a remix by the Norwegian songwriter Susanne Sundfør who has collaborated previously with Maps and recently featured on the M83 soundtrack for the film ‘Oblivion’.  Download Sundfør’s remix below:

The hand stamped 12”, available exclusively through Rough Trade, features the original version, previously one of Rough Trade & The Guardian’s Tracks of the Week, alongside remixes from Dutch electronic artists Legowelt  and fellow Mercury nominees The Invisible alongside a remix from Maps himself. Pre-order HERE 

A.M.A.’, from its opening click-thump drum track and its summery cascading chorus, is a perfect introduction to two of the main themes from the new album – change and hope.  Listen to its soaring melodies below:

While previous album Turning The Mind swung like a hedonistic after-party held after Maps’ debut We Can Create’s Mercury Prize nomination, Vicissitude has the distinct feeling of digging deep and confronting reality head on. And in each of those cases, with Chapman the sole creative force behind the music, any Maps album is defined entirely by where his head was at during the recording process.

Vicissitude focuses, tightens and sharpens Maps’ expansive sound. The album might have been born from a long period of self-contemplation, but maybe you do need a while to get simple answers to the difficult questions. Time to face the light.
