After dropping the addictive electro-house single “Controller”, featuring The Horrors’ Faris Badwan, Andy Butler’s New York disco-house collective Hercules & Love Affair are back with their new single from their upcoming fourth studio album “Omnion”. The album’s title track finds Hercules & Love Affair joined forces with Sharon Van Etten to deliver a triumphant sliver of tuneful electronica. The new 11-track album, which follows 2014’s “The Feast of the Broken Heart”, is about “a queering of faith, creating room for the questioning “others” in a perfectly imperfect temple,” says Andy Butler. The album also features a list of guest appearances including Gustaph, Rouge Mary, Mashrou’ Leila, and Sisy Ey.

The album “Omnion” arrives on September 1 via Beat Big Records. Pre-order it here.

Hercules & Love Affair’s Andy Butler is getting ready to drop his debut solo EP, “You Can Shine”, via his own label mr.intl. Here we have for you the EPs title track, a techno-soul cut featuring the vocal talents of Richard Kennedy. “Whilst Hercules has a collaborative, collective approach, Shine goes for a more direct approach, a stomping, uplifting club 12″ but it’s me so it will still have something of Hercules about it…I hope we’ve created something new. House is often soulful but you very rarely hear a big gospel-inflected voice paired with booming, doomy techno,” says Andy Butler.

The two-track “You Can Shine” EP follows a strong year for Hercules & Love Affair, which saw them released their third album “The Feast Of The Broken Heart”. The record will arrive on vinyl on February 23, while the digital version will come out on March 16.

Just a few days ago, Andy Butler’s New York disco-house collective Hercules & Love Affair dropped their third album “The Feast of the Broken Heart” (available to stream in full here), and it was definitely worth the wait. Now, Hercules & Love Affair’s recent single “I Try To Talk To You”, a gorgeous, piano-led house tune featuring vocals from American singer-songwriter John Grant, gets the remix treatment it deserves at the hands of Metro Area’s Morgan Geist. Of course, we’d expect nothing less from this iconic producer.

In Andy Butler’s own words: “I needed a producer who could confidently handle both the gravity of the song, a big vocal and still bring the boogie. The mix has the persistent feel of a factory while still championing the elegance John’s vocals and piano brought to the collaboration.” This remix will appear on “I Try to Talk to You” Remixes EP, which will drop on June 9th via Moshi Moshi. Just in case you missed it, check out the David Wilson-directed video for “I Try To Talk To You” here.
