In a recent interview with NME, Hudson Mohawke let it be known that the follow-up to his 2009 debut album Butter is set to drop this year:

“It’s going to be this year, definitely. I’ve been working on it for a while and taking my time with it. Every month or two I’ll go back and do another couple weeks work on it. A lot of it’s been me saying “Yeah, I’m definitely using that” and then I scrap it a month later because I don’t like it.

“‘Butter’ was a collage of different stuff I’d done over the few years before that. This one is a bit more consolidated as a project. I want it to be like an album album, you know?

“…there are also live instruments. Strings, horns, trumpets…I wanted to make it more musical in general and less computer focussed. I want to step out of the electronic bedroom producer role and move into a musician producer role.”

HudMo also talks about how Kanye West heard about him and signing with G.O.O.D. Music, how he approaches their production work versus his own music, and why he and Lunice created TNGHT.
