Erland Cooper has released the first track from his upcoming album which is due for release next year. The track, Maalie (which takes its name from the Orcadian dialect for the Fulmar bird), features guitars from Leo Abrahams and hardanger violin and vocals from Charlotte Greenhow.

The album was mixed in the Big Room by Erland and Oli Jacobs in just two days. Mixes were crafted without plugins – using only the outboard equipment, reverbs and the console – no automation or recall. It was mastered by Guy Davie at Electric Mastering and is due for release in early 2018.
