Bottin is happy to announce the forthcoming I Have what I Gave – a new album set for release on October 6 via 2MR. Today he reveals a new single from the album, “Perfect Mind“.
Today’s single marks the second Bottin has shared from the album. He previously released the hypnotic, pop-disco “Y-A-M-L (feat. Lavinia Claws)” which existed in parts for a decade before coming together during the sessions for this album. On its’ release Jezebel called the track “utterly transcendent.”
On I Have What I Gave, the Italian Bottin crafts propulsive, disco-laden scores for films not yet made, and introspective, mind-expanding cuts designed to ensure that people who want to dance never get caught up in conventional experiences. Throughout, I Have What I Gave is filled with intricate and nuanced arrangements.
Setting I Have What I Gave apart from his pioneering Horror Disco and much-loved Punica Fides LPs is that this time around Bottin didn’t see to it to create a concept-album structure. Everything came at once during the writing and recording process, which no doubt gives the album its intensity and sense of immediacy. Bottin notes, “this album came about as a stream of musical consciousness. I worked on all the tracks simultaneously – not one at a time as I normally do.”
