Forest Swords has announced details of his new album, the follow up to 2013 debut ‘Engravings’.

‘Compassion’ will be released on 5th May via Ninja Tune, preceded by new single ‘Arms Out’ – watch the track’s video below.

“Like many, with all that’s been going on since I started making the record, I’ve struggled to see any kind of light at the end of the tunnel,” says Matthew Barnes, “so I realised there’s some sort of power in trying to create our own instead.

“I’m inspired by the ways we’re communicating now, for better or worse, and thinking about new channels we can distribute ideas. The idea of looking for flexible future ways of expression and language, that bends to our needs quicker, really excites me.”
