Announcing the project on Instagram, Midland writes: “Its been 4 years since I put out new music. Over lockdown I retreated fully, burnt out in many ways. It also coincided with a studio move and overhaul of my studio process.
“As I started to make music again, I instead focussed on the simple joy of creating with with zero thought about sharing it publicly.”
He continues: “I have never enjoyed making music like I do now and I think it shines through in these tracks. This EP represents a new chapter for me and I am excited to share the rest of it as well as a bunch more music over the next 12 months.”
The event is set to run on October 7 with a three-room showcase curated by Midland.
Talking about the upcoming night he says: “I first came to fabric as a fresh-faced youth and have got to play all three rooms and eventually recorded my FABRICLIVE cd... This feels like another personal milestone and I hope to see as many of you there as possible…”
