Mark Pritchard is set to release Under The Sun on 13th May via Warp Records. His first solo album in five years, boldly re-establishes what an ‘album’ can mean at this point in time. Designed to be listened to in one sitting, Under The Sun achieves what most albums aim for but rarely achieve – perfect synergy. Where the potential of the sum of the parts, the individual tracks, resonate even more fully when experienced as part of the whole album. Under The Sun is one story told in chapters and, as with any good story, the spell is only maintained if you don’t skip to the end.
