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.
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.
