Get those brows furrowed, everyone: it’s brooding time. New York-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Rafael Anton Irisarri has a new LP set for Lawrence English’s Room40.

The prolific ambient tunesmith’s latest, Solastalgia, follows in the footsteps of his doomsday clock-themed release, Midnight Colours, by exploring the the concept of solastalgia: the existential dread of climate change and past environmental catastrophes.

Irisarri touches on “perpetual ruptures in what we know and how we live,” and how “time takes no prisoners, no matter how tightly we might grasp things from moment to moment.” Does this guy know how to party or what?!?

Solastalgia is out June 21, and the label has shared “Coastal Trapped Disturbance,” which is streaming below. Head here to pre-order the full album — and for god’s sake, hurry; who knows how much time you’ve got left?

01. Decay Waves
02. Coastal Trapped Disturbance
03. Chrysalism
04. Visible Through The Shroud
