HAAi – aka Teneil Throssell – has debuted a brand new single, ‘Purple Jelly Disc’.
Featuring London-based vocalist Obi Franky, the track is the latest to come from forthcoming debut album ‘Baby, We’re Ascending’, set for release via Mute on 27th May.
It comes alongside a video created by The Horrors’ Tom Furse, which you can check out 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 and Moxie 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.
