Experimental producer Ben Frost will release his fifth studio album on September 29th through Mute Records. Titled The Centre Cannot Hold, it follows his Threshold of Faith EP, which dropped just a few weeks ago, and was recorded in Chicago with studio legend Steve Albini (Nirvana, Mogwai, PJ Harvey).

Frost, whose last full-length was 2014’s acclaimed A U R O R A, is said to present “an exercise in limitation and chromatic saturation” on the new LP. “The Centre Cannot Hold is an attempt at transcribing a spectrum of glowing ultramarine into sound.”

“The music exists not in space, but in a space; it is a document of an event, of a room, and of the composer within it,” a press release continues to describe. “It is music that is not fully controlled and appears to be anxiously, often violently competing against its creator.”

Ahead of the LP’s release, the Swans and Tim Hecker associate has shared the music video for “Threshold of Faith”. Shot last winter in Reykjavik, where Frost currently resides, it’s a collaboration with documentary photographer Richard Mosse and cinematographer Trevor Tweeten. Check it out below, followed by the artwork and full tracklist.
