WHOA WHOA WHOA! Yves Tumor surprise-releases new album Safe in the Hands of Love on Warp

Whaaaaaaa!! What’s going onnnnnnnnn?!


Yes I know TMT’s beloved Yves Tumor released a new song and video last week. That’s old news! But wait what’s this? You’re telling me that song was just a single for a new album? A new album that’s out now?!?!?

Apparently, this surprising new album is called Safe in the Hands of Love and is out now via Warp Records on streaming services everywhere, with CD and 2LP versions coming October 12. Last year’s Experiencing the Deposit of Faith was #2 on our Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2017 and Yves’s previous album, Serpent Music, was #11 on our Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2016. But wait, hold the phone, this newly released album is apparently radically different from any of Yves’s previous work? Seriously????

Safe in the Hands of Love features the aforementioned “Licking an Orchid” as well as the Marilyn Manson-channeling “Noid” and 7 other new tracks. The record features guest spots from James K, Croatian Amor, Oxhy, and Puce Mary. Wow! Supersquad, assemble!


Alright, TMT team! Now’s your chance! Go! Go! Go! Stream it, buy it, check it! Also take a look at that supersonic album artwork below, then just try and catch Yves at one of his upcoming shows this year. You’re welcome!
