Forest Swords is back with a new double-single.
‘Butterfly Effect’ – which features a previously-unheard vocal sample by Neneh Cherry – and b-side ‘Tar’ are out now via Ninja Tune.
“The track swirled around as a pure instrumental for a while, a beat I made in the cold factory space in Liverpool I was recording in, some kind of attempt to cope with the psychedelic amounts of pain I was in from a leg injury,” Matthew Barnes explains of the single.
“Neneh’s unreleased archive vocal turned out to be a perfect fit, like they were meant to be together somehow. As a fan that has always idolised her, it’s a true honour and life highlight to have her blessing to use the vocal on this track.”
