Legend has it that when the crane caws thrice at dusk, when the capybara sees its shadow and runs, when the salt ponds of Maras turn a delicate lavender; a new DJ Koze album must be on the horizon. Hark, it breaks! And the first streaks pierce the evening sky! And lo: finally a new album arrives on his home planet of Pampa! And what’s that? You can stream the first single, “Seeing Aliens” — and its B-side, “Nein König Nein” — as they arise from the settling dust?! The prophecy…has been…fulfilled!

Knock Knock marks the first official, corporeal “album” from the German DJ since 2013’s Amygdala, though his spectral image has appeared briefly over those 5 years to release loads of material, including some chakra-bending singles and one of the most Earth-alchemizing DJ mixes of recent memory. Out May 4, Knock Knock features help from Bon Iver, José Gonzalez, Sophia Kennedy, Róisín Murphy, and, wait…the earthling ego of Marvel’s Nightcrawler???

Check out the cover art for Knock Knock down below as you listen to the psychedelic new songs. Long-time lovers of Koze will find solace in their pulsating house rhythm and playful, euphoric samples. Then, head here to pre-order the album on CD, 2xLP, or as a special “strictly limited” box set. (Oh and one last thing I forgot to mention: Koze’s shamanic presence has finally found its way over to Instagram. Just as the prophecy foretold!!!
