The 40-minute album will be released on various formats, including CD, cassette, vinyl and download/stream (see Discography for more details). The label is Transgressive Records to which Damon has recently signed.

The album's title track was released as a single yesterday and is available to listen to on various platforms, including YouTube and Spotify.

The record started in 2019 as an orchestral piece composed in Iceland. Early this year, it was developed into more formal songs with the sessions taking place at Damon's home studio in Devon. "It was the most extreme two months making the record. I think it kind of needed to be because the atmosphere of the record is quite unique, for me anyway," Damon told Steve Lamacq yesterday.
