New Martin Gore Track 'Howler' Out Now
Taken From The Third Chimpanzee EP Released 29 January 2021
posted: January 7th, 2021

Martin Gore releases the haunting 'Howler' today on Mute. It's taken from the forthcoming 5 track instrumental EP, The Third Chimpanzee, out 29 January 2021.

"Howler was the first track I recorded for The Third Chimpanzee EP," Martin says. "I resynthesized 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."

Like the entire EP, 'Howler' paints a cinematic musical landscape that sounds like a new dawn. Written and produced by Martin Gore, it was recorded at Electric Ladyboy in Santa Barbara, California.

The Third Chimpanzee EP is available for pre-order now on CD, limited edition 12" Azure Blue vinyl (which includes an art print), and digitally. Artwork is by Pockets Warhol.

Martin Gore Unleashes New Track "Mandrill"
First Taste From Forthcoming EP, "The Third Chimpanzee"
posted: November 17th, 2020

'Mandrill' is the first release from Martin Gore's forthcoming 5-track instrumental EP, The Third Chimpanzee, which is to be released January 29, 2021 by Mute. The track is a ferocious slice of electro, and, like the four other tracks on the EP, has Martin's hugely atmospheric musical trademark stamped all over it. 'Mandrill' was produced and written by Martin and recorded this year at Electric Ladyboy in Santa Barbara, California.

"The first track I recorded had a sound that wasn't human," Martin explains. "It sounded primate-like. I decided to name it 'Howler', after a monkey. Then, when it came time to name the EP, I remembered reading the book 'The Rise and Fall of the Third Chimpanzee'. It all made sense to call it that, as the EP was made by one of the third chimpanzees."

The Third Chimpanzee EP is available for pre-order now on CD, limited edition 12" Azure Blue vinyl (which includes an art print), and digitally. Artwork is by Pockets Warhol.
