Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points has today shared a new single, ‘Someone Close’ which is out now via Ninja Tune.Shepherd has also today announced that ‘Someone Close’ will be released on vinyl alongside the three other new tracks he’s shared this year: ‘Grammar‘, ‘Vocoder‘ and ‘Problems‘. All four will be available on limited vinyl for the first time on 16 December.
‘Grammar’, ‘Vocoder’ and ‘Problems’ were met with widespread praise including a Best New Track from Pitchfork and a glowing review from Resident Advisor describing Shepherd as “one of electronic music’s undisputed MVPs”. ‘Someone Close’ changes tack completely, something Shepherd has done effortlessly across his career, capping off a run of releases that have showcased the many strings to his bow yet still holds together seamlessly.
Following a summer of festival sets at Glastonbury, Coachella and Field Day, this Autumn/Winter Shepherd will take things back indoors. With an upcoming show on an incredible bill from The Warehouse Project he’ll follow up with a marathon open-to-close set at London’s brand new 25,000 square-foot club HERE on New Year’s Day 2023. Tickets here.
