Andy Stott Details New Album 'Never the Right Time'
Hear "The Beginning" from the UK producer's latest now
Published Mar 23, 2021Andy Stott has returned with details of a new album. The Manchester-based producer will share new LP Never the Right Time on April 16 through Modern Love.
The nine-track Never the Right Time follows Stott's 2019 double EP It Should Be Us and 2016 LP Too Many Voices.
Early last year, Stott reportedly had "a new album almost done and an offer to produce for a completely mainstream artist on the table," before "personal upheaval brought everything to a sudden standstill."
A new approach for what would become Never the Right Time saw Stott collect raw recordings of "slow horns, sibilance, delayed drums, wondering flutes — whatever, whenever," in search of sound that was "human in all its awkward asymmetry."
"The Beginning," which you can hear below, is the first track to arrive from Never the Right Time, featuring vocals from recurring collaborator, family friend and former piano teacher Alison Skidmore.

1. Away Not Gone
2. Never the Right Time
3. Repetitive Strain
4. Don't Know How
