New Single: A.M.A. – out 24 June

Maps - Credit: Erika Wall Maps – aka James Chapman – will release a brand new single on 24 June 2013. ‘A.M.A.’, the first single from the new album Vicissitude (out on 8 July 2013) will be released on limited edition hand stamped 12” vinyl & download and will include exclusive remixes.

You can listen to A.M.A. here:

A.M.A.’ opens the forthcoming new album, Vicissitude, out in summer 2013. Its opening click-thump drum track opens up into a summery cascading chorus. The soaring melodies and lyrics introduce two of the main themes of the album – change and hope.

While 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.

A.M.A.’ follows the exclusive limited edition 12” release of ‘I Heard Them Say’ via Boomkat. Backed with remixes by Andy Stott and Maps, the 12” sold out immediately, you can hear the a-side here:

As with previous releases, the new album was primarily recorded at Maps’ home, and was mixed by Ken Thomas (Sugarcubes, M83, Sigur Ros) and Jolyon Thomas.

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

Listen to I Heard Them Say remixed by Andy Stott – HERE
