Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points has released new single ‘Someone Close, which is out now on Ninja Tune. Shepherd also announced that the track will be released on vinyl alongside the three other new tracks he's shared this year: ‘Grammar’, ‘Vocoder’ and ‘Problems’. All four will be available on limited vinyl for the first time on 16 December.
Grammar’, ‘Vocoder’ and ‘Problems’ were apparently met with praise including a Best New Track from Pitchfork and a glowing review from Resident Advisor, describing Shepherd as "one of electronic music's undisputed MVPs."
‘Someone Close’ changes track completely, something he has done across his career, capping off a run of releases that have showcased various strings of his bow.
Following a summer of festival sets at Glastonbury, Coachella and Field Day, this winter he will take things back indoors at home in the UK. With an upcoming show at The Warehouse Project he'll follow up with a open-to-close set at London’s brand new 25,000 square-foot club HERE on New Year’s Day 2023.
