Nitin Sawhney has partnered with Absolute Label Services for the UK release of his 10th studio album, Dystopian Dream.
The record will be released through Sawhney’s own label, Postiv-ID, on November 6, 2015. Absolute will be providing a full label service, including project management, digital and offline promotion and marketing, sales and distribution.
Led by new single, When I’m Gone feat. Stealth, the album is set to become a fully choreographed show with the innovative Wang-Ramirez Company. A raft of UK dates has also been announced in support of the album, including London’s Heaven on Tuesday, November 17.
Sawhney said: “When I first met the team from Absolute I was blown away by their sheer enthusiasm and inspiring energy. They had clearly listened a great deal to the new album and were already prepared with a very practical and exciting plan of how things would work. As an artist who is about to release his 10th studio album, I have always been supported by independent labels who have made my recording career as a solo artist an amazing journey.
“Now Absolute are able to give me my own independence and amplify my voice in a way that creates new models of possibility. This album will be released and supported with a tour, like any other of my albums, but it will have the additional element of choreography in a live show from the internationally renowned Wang Ramirez Company. Absolute are helping me to capitalise on the enormous potential of such a fresh and unprecedented endeavour. That is why I know I made the right decision in choosing to work with them.”
Mark Dowling, director, Absolute Label Services, added: “We are delighted that Nitin has chosen to work with us at Absolute Label Services as his partner in the independent sector. Nitin, as with all his previous work, has delivered a stunning album and we can’t wait for people to hear it. A true pioneer, Nitin is involved in a huge amount of activity surrounding the album which we will bolster, to give it the platform it deserves.”
