British dance music stalwart ​Hot Since 82 ​has unveiled his long awaited third studio album Recovery,​ out ​27th November​ on his own K​nee Deep in Sound​ label. A deeply personal record, ​Recovery ​is a sonic reflection on the period following the suicide of one of the Yorkshireman’s close friends, as well as the tumultuous situation currently faced by the world. The 13-track release is also characterised by a long list of star-studded collaborators, including UK musical icon ​Boy George and ​Paradise label head Jamie Jones on ​Hot Since 82​’s latest single ​‘Body Control’​, a devastating combination of deep basslines and George’s iconic vocals. Further singles come in the form of ​‘Be Strong’​, a grooving tech number in collaboration with ​Grammy winners ​Rudimental​, and the punchy kick drums of ​‘Eye Of The Storm’ ​featuring London singer-songwriter Liz Cass​, tracks that have racked up ​1 million and 500,000 streams​ respectively.
Further highlights come in the form of LP opener ​‘Nightfall’​, an emotion-tinged dance cut featuring the indie vocals of ​Temple​, who also appears on the similarly melodic closing track ‘Black & White’​, techno legend Miss Kittin helps channel 80s synth vibes on ​‘Naboo’ and West Country singer-songwriter Ed Graves lends his soothing vocals to the fluttering electronica of ‘Sinnerman’.
One of the most revered artists in underground dance music, ​Hot Since 82 is a regular at many of Ibiza’s finest clubs, as well as running the highly influential ​Knee Deep In Sound ​imprint. Recovery follows 2019’s acclaimed ‘8-track’ ​LP, which he described as “​a deeply personal record that reflected a challenging time in his life”,​ and has amassed over ​30 million worldwide streams ​to date.
A stunning collection of tracks with emotion and poignance at their heart, ​Recovery ​is Hot Since 82’s most accomplished work to date.
