Tim Hecker Reveals New Album Concept

We’re not alone in predicting that 2016 could see breakthroughs in streaming culture, but Tim Hecker appears to be totally reconceptualizing the topic in his upcoming release, Love Streams. Recorded in Reykjavik, the LP reportedly celebrates the “ubiquity and nihilism of streaming of all forms of life” and riffs on a wide array of influences, from Renaissance choral music to artificial intelligence, liturgical aesthetics post-Yeezus and the “transcendental voice in the age of auto-tune.” The album lands on April 8 via 4AD.
