Four Tet Releases Spirited New Song “Planet”
After releasing the soothing “Two Thousand and Seventeen” last month, Four Tet has returned with another song in the form of “Planets”. Kieran Hebden, the man behind the moniker, recently revealed via BBC 1 that there has been music in the works for the last ten months, meaning it would be reasonable to surmise that a follow-up to 2015’s Morning/Evening may be out soon.
“Planet” features some explosive synths, accompanied by seductive vocals to create an immersive experience.
