House pioneer Larry Heard is reportedly releasing a new album early next year, according to Resident Advisor. The as-yet-untitled project would be his first full-length since 2005's Loose Fingers (Soundtrack From The Duality Double-Play). The album is said to also be preceded by a 12-inch, titled Virtual Emotion / Supernova, due in September on Alleviated Records.
Fans of Heard will supposedly get to preview tracks from the album during his upcoming live set at London's Sunfall Festival, which is scheduled for Saturday, August 12 at Brockley Park alongside performances from Ben UFO, The Black Madonna, Theo Parrish, and more. It will mark Heard's first such set in 20 years.
THUMP has reached out to Heard's team for comment.
Last month, we talked to Heard about the making of house classic "Can You Feel It."
