Premiere: Cate Ferris shares her new track, 'Gyroscope'. Listen exclusively here...

We've got something special for you this morning - the brilliant new track 'Gyroscope' from Cate Ferris.

Taken from her upcoming album of the same name, 'Gyroscope' is a curious and brilliant mix of Cate's melismatic vocals and electronic timbres, textures and rhythms - we haven't heard anything quite like it and that's a great thing.

Cate Ferris says of the track "Gyroscope is about clinging to love in the middle of the madness and trying to find a sense of balance when life throws a billion curve-balls. It was recorded in my studio at home using samples from the inside workings of a broken gramophone and sounds from my collection of old keyboards. These were then combined with beautiful viola/violin layers, glorious synth lines and multiple vocal takes contained within a velvet-lined alcove"

Taking inspiration from W.B. Yeat’s poem ‘The Second Coming’, Cate’s compositions throughout the new album are based on the idea that a human brain although expansive in intelligence, is essentially unfit to contain so much emotional information. It was the particular piece of prose: “Things fall apart: The Centre Cannot Hold. The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity”, she drew the expression from, as it became frighteningly relevant inside of her own experiences and indeed on a more global stage.

The album is set for release in 2020 - at a date to be confirmed - but it's already risen to the top of our most anticipated albums of the next year.
