We may have to wait until January to listen to Hercules and Love Affair's sophomore album, Blue Songs, but H&LA main main, Andrew Butler, is keeping busy with his record label MR. INTL. His label's whole spiel is to release retro bangers that don't sound anything "pre-'85 or post-'94". And first order of business? Release a seven-minute jam with techno maestro Jason Kendig. The jam in question is called "And I'm (So In Love With You)" and will be available exclusively at Beatport on August 30 before being released on vinyl sometime this fall.
You can listen to Andy Butlers' "And I'm (So In Love With You)" below:
In other H&LA news, Andy Butler has also recorded a cover of the xx's "Shelter" with Hercules & Love Affair collaborator, Kim Ann Foxman. The cover will be released sometime in November. Not sure if it will appear on the album or not — if it doesn't, we also have Blue Songs' first single to look forward to, presumably sometime in November or December. In other words, we have quite a bit of Andrew Butler goodness to look forward to.
Bonus: Watch Hercules and Love Affair and Bloc Party's Kele perform a new song live, "Step Up"
