Today, FaltyDL reveals his latest LP, In the Wild, set for release on Ninja Tune on August 12th. To coincide with the announcement, FaltyDL (aka Drew Lustman) is currently streaming the first single off the record, “Do Me.” Listen to the single here.
In addition, FaltyDL has collaborated with British artist Chris Shen to build a conceptual hub around the record and its principal themes — releasing Drew’s music into the wild. The first video shows the infamous NY dance crew W.A.F.F.L.E. jamming to “Do Me” on the subway in New York City. Watch the video here and visit faltydl.com/inthewild.
FaltyDL has also released a companion poem for the album, reprinted below:
“In The Wild”
Upon a mountaintop in Port Lligat I found my true love.
We wrapped each other Uptight,
never will I forget so much regret.
Do Me is truth is progress is death is pain is boredom is sex is dance is silence is void.
Nine is eternal stream is people is family is anger is fight is father is not all.
Heart & Soul is female is more anger is ignorance is blisters on sun soaked lips.
Greater Antilles is two parts masculine one part crystalline structures.
Ahead the Ship Sleeps in Danger is Grief resolved through Rolling in New Haven.
Dos Gardenias para ti.
Post-stroke vernacular, insult to salt intake fake injury to resume sideline spectatorship.
Strained precision, illegal decision and fat masterbatorial visions.
Vapid vaper-what never signed up, tell a lie, till the day I die.
Ghost written by Shanghai Den,
Very best, Falty
