New Earthling album

An email from Tim Saul confirms that Human Dust, the long-finished second Earthling album, will see a release this year, on the French Discograph label. The slated date is September 13th.

I’ll be posting some material about Earthling later, but suffice to say that 1995’s Radar was one of the classic albums in the first rush of trip-hop (when it was still — controversially — called that). Their second album stands alongside Fresh Four’s Smith & Mighty-produced debut as one of the lost Bristol sound albums.

There is also, apparently, the possibility of some live shows in the autumn. Which is exciting indeed.

The site that had housed a tracklisting and audio samples for some time appears to be down at the moment.

Update: more information here.
