4AD: it’s not just for wraith-like dream pop anymore! And it hasn’t been for a long time! I mean, c’mon, they’ve put out like five different Mountain Goats records. Take that, my own stated presumptions about 4AD! Still, it’s never seemed like the go-to home for dubstep guys. That’s slowly changing, what with their signing of Zomby and now, the announcement that Bristol-based Joker will be putting out a single via the label.
On May 16, 4AD will release a Joker 12-inch by the name of “The Vision.” The record’s A-side is a version of the song called “The Vision (Breathe In),” which differentiates itself from the instrumental B-side by featuring vocals from London-based singer Jessie Ware. Whether this is a one-off release or a longer relationship (as the Zomby signing seems to be) is unknown. Nobody knows it, not even Joker himself! Actually, Joker might know it.
“The Vision” tracklisting:
A. The Vision (Breathe In) (feat. Jessie Ware)
