Watch the new single A.M.A., taken from “Vicissitude”.

James Chapman

“an understated and beautiful album” – 8* The 405

 “Chapman has crafted his best album to date” – The Quietus

 9* – Clash


Watch the video for ‘A.M.A.’, Maps’ new single and the opening track of new album, Vicissitude here:


Shot in Spain and directed by Alan Masferrer, the video perfectly captures the dreamy summery mood of ‘A.M.A.’.

A.M.A.’ is out now on limited edition Rough Trade 12” and download, with remixes from the Norwegian songwriter Susanne Sundfør who has collaborated previously with Maps and recently featured on the M83 soundtrack for the film ‘Oblivion’; Dutch electronic artist Legowelt  and fellow Mercury nominees The Invisible alongside a remix from Maps himself.

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.
