!K7 are proud to announce the forthcoming album of Will Saul's moniker CLOSE. Within the world of electronic music, Will Saul is perhaps best known for Aus Music and Simple Records, Getting Closer will be Will's first full-length album since 'Space Between', released under his given name back in 2005.
Within the world of electronic music, Will Saul is perhaps best known for Aus Music and Simple Records, the labels he set up and has A&Red for over a decade. Between them there have been over 100 vinyl releases from the inuential likes of Joy Orbison, Carl Craig, Pearson Sound, Scuba and Actress, as well as EPs that helped to break upcoming talents like Bicep, Dusky, Midland and George FitzGerald.
Getting Closer will be Will's first full-length album since 'Space Between', released under his given name back in 2005. He has slowly and anonymously leaked CLOSE material into the public sphere over the last 12 months; including remixes of Fink, Little Dragon and Hotush boss Scuba. The alias was initially conceived in order to release music that would be judged on merit alone, rather than on the name to which it was attached, but following great reactions was increasingly difcult to keep secret.
Proceeded mid April by first single 'Beam Me Up' Feat. Charlene Soraia and Scuba (with remixes by George FitzGerald, Hercules and Love Affair and Scuba) the album marks a big evolution in Saul's sound, leaning away from bass and house and more toward a world of dark yet idyllic pop.
The album's title 'Getting Closer' refers quite literally to its creation process, which was distilled through a number of collaborative layers
1. I Died 1000 Times Feat. Charlene Soraia & October
3. My Way Feat. Joe Dukie (Tanner Ross & Slow Hands Remix)
5. Born In A Rolling Barrel Feat. Tikiman, October & Appleblim
6. Time Fades
7. Wallflower Feat. Fink
8. Future Love
9. Beam Me Up Feat. Charlene Soraia & Scuba
