William Basinski has announced a new album. On November 13, he’ll release Lamentations via Temporary Residence. It’s described as his most “mournful” work since his iconic Disintegration Loops. Much like that album, the record features source material, loops and studies from Basinski’s archives, some dating back to 1979: “over forty years of mournful sighs meticulously crafted into songs.” The first track to be released from the new album is titled “O, My Daughter, O, My Sorrow.” Hear it below. That’s the album’s artwork above, and the tracklist can be found below.
