The record's lead single ‘17°C’ also arrived alongside a new music video on Ghostly directed by Michael Reisinger, filmed in Colorado's Great Sand Dunes.
Loraine James’ new project will see James shift from last year-released ‘Reflections’, her debut LP via Hyperdub honing in on darker electronics, to more rhythmic, choppy, and vocal cuts in ‘Whatever The Weather’.

James is also due to play her first show under the new moniker alongside Yraki at London’s Café OTO on April 7, just a day before the release of the next LP.
According to the producer, each track of the new release takes the name from different temperatures with songs replicating the mood.
