Crush is the first Floating Points album since 2017's Reflections – Mojave Desert. A statement confirms the album was made during a five-week period when Shepherd was supporting The xx in 2017. Those support slots involved him improvising "some of the most obtuse and aggressive music I've ever made, in front of
20,000 people every night," he said. "It was liberating."
