Underworld have announced details of DRIFT Series 1, that concludes on 1st November 2019 with a collection of new material released as a box set/LP/CD/DL and on streaming services. The box set features 7 CDs, a Blu-ray and an eighty page full colour book.
• It’s a series of extraordinary films that take you from Shibuya Crossing to the Moroccan desert to rural Essex via the inside of a supercomputer.
• It’s a book that delves into process and explores the motivation behind one of the most ambitious creative endeavours ever attempted by a recording artist.
And… at the heart of it, there’s some of the best music Underworld have ever made – as much a progressive leap forward into the unknown as their classic debut dubnobasswithmyheadman.
Underworld play a series of previously announced shows in November/December at:
Fri Nov 22nd Antwerp, Lotto Arena
Sat Nov 23rd Amsterdam, Ziggo Dome
Thu Dec 5th Manchester, Warehouse Project
Sat Dec 7th London, Wembley Arena
DRIFT Series 1 collects the entire body of work and will be made available digitally on the one year anniversary of the first release. The DRIFT Series 1 Sampler Edition comes out the same day. The DRIFT Series 1 box set comprises 7 CDs, 1 Blu-ray, and an 80 page exclusive book documenting the entire DRIFT journey from start to finish in interviews with Rick Smith, Karl Hyde and Tomato’s Simon Taylor along with pictures, poems, commentary and lyrics.
