“…a lysergic soaked Pet Shop Boys meeting Moby at his most electronic and blissful” – The Guardian
“an understated and beautiful album” – 8* The 405
“Chapman has crafted his best album to date” – The Quietus
Maps – aka James Chapman – has just released You Will Find A Way, the second single from his new album Vicissitude. The new single comes backed with remixes by Tuff Sherm, Mercia, Maps and labelmate Polly Scattergood.
To coincide with this release, Maps has partnered with Talent House to host a remix contest for the track.

With Chapman as the sole creative force behind the music, every Maps album is defined entirely by where his head was at during the recording process. His second album release, Turning The Mind churns like a hedonistic after party, picking up where Maps critically acclaimed and Mercury Prize Nominated debut, We Can Create left off. Vicissitude is Maps latest triumph—showcasing Chapman’s spoils from his continuous battle to dig deep, confront reality and conquer new musical territory.
As with previous releases, Vicissitude was primarily recorded at Maps’ home in Northampton and was mixed by Ken Thomas (Sugarcubes, M83, Sigur Ros) and Jolyon Thomas.
