Duval Timothy, the pianist and producer who contributed to four tracks on Kendrick Lamar's Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, has announced details of a new solo album. Meeting With a Judas Tree is due on November 11 via Carrying Colour and features "Mutate," which you can hear below.
Meeting With a Judas Tree was recorded between the Carrying Colour studio in Freetown in Sierra Leone, during an artist residency in the village of Spoleto in Perugia in Italy, and his home studio in south London.
It features contributions from fellow musicians Yu Su, Fauzia and Lamin Fofana. During Duval’s reidency at Mahler LeWitt’ Song Of The Earth in Italy he was creating work in response to her husband Gustav Mahler’s "Das Lied Von Der Erde (The Song of the Earth)" that ended up on the album.
The album follows Timothy’s 2020 solo album Help. Last year he released Son, a collaborative project made with Rosie Lowe.
