Producer, singer and DJ HAAi – aka Teneil Throssell – has announced her debut album.
Titled ‘Baby, We’re Ascending’, the full-length is set for release on 27th May via Mute.
The announcement follows her recent collab with Romy of The xx and Fred Again.., ‘Lights Out’, which arrived earlier this year, and comes alongside the first single from the album, ‘Bodies Of Water’, which you can stream below.
Speaking on the album, Teneil says: “Getting this album out of my head and computer was quite the cathartic experience. ‘Baby, We’re Ascending’ is a hyperactive journey that feels like a real reflection of who I am.
“I’m so proud of every second of it. Of all the experimentation as well as the collaborators. It was made with great love and care. I hope you enjoy.”
The album features a cast of collaborators including Jon Hopkins, Alexis Taylor, Moxie, Obi Franky as well as the spoken word poet and trans-visibility activist Kai-Isaiah Jamal. It’s also made alongside a roster of female and non-binary creatives including designer Raissa Pardini, mixing engineer Marta Salogni (Björk, Romy), engineer/producer Francine Perry, string arranger Quinta and creative director & long-time collaborator Imogene Barron.
