In celebration of the reissue of his third album Rounds, super-producer Kieren Hebden (a.k.a. Four Tet) has dug into his personal archives and shared the original version of the album track “Unspoken”, which samples Tori Amos’ “Winter”.

The tenth anniversary edition of Rounds is out now via Domino Records.
