Taken from Gore's forthcoming new five-track, instrumental EP 'The Third Chimpanzee'.
Depeche Mode co-founder Martin Gore has released his latest solo track, ‘Howler’, from his forthcoming EP.
Gore's ‘The Third Chimpanzee’ is set for release on January 29th, following on from his 2015 instrumental album MG.
'Europa Hymn' was the first track released from Gore's instrumental record - MG - his first solo effort since 2003's Counterfeit².
Speaking about ‘Howler’, Gore said in a statement:
“‘Howler’ was the first track I recorded for ‘The Third Chimpanzee’ EP. I resynthesised some vocals that almost sounded human, but not quite. That’s why I decided to name the track after a monkey. I thought that would be a good theme to carry on with the rest of the tracks.”
The musician previously shared 'Mandrill' from the work back in November 2020.
Written and produced by Gore in 2020, the ‘Third Chimpanzee’ EP was recorded at Electric Ladyboy in Santa Barbara, California.
