What Autograf didn't initially tell the world is that "Metaphysical" is the first single to result form their new signing with Counter—exclusive news we're very excited to announce. The trio is understandingly thrilled about the deal, and gave THUMP the scoop via email: "It's crazy the journey life takes you on," they said. "I mean, Jake was welding in a factory when we started Autograf as a DIY art project. It was a creative outlet for the mundane part of our lives yet here we are signed to the same label as Amon Tobin and Bonobo. Our big break came when ODESZA hit us up to do that remix, which put us on the radar with their label. Even though the music has taken over in a big way, we still think the focus of the group is on the art. It drives everything we do and we're striving to compliment the audio with the visual wherever we can"

Going on, they explained, "We all start life with a blank canvas, and it's everyones calling to Leave Your Autograf." Part of their single announcement is an interactive online hub called Leave Your Autograf where fans are encouraged to do just that.
