Manchester producer Andy Stott has released “The Beginning,” a new song from his upcoming album Never the Right Time.
The ethereal track features vocals by Alison Skidmore, Stott’s piano teacher-turned-collaborator. According to Stereogum, Never the Right Time is a melancholic new release that Stott worked on after “personal upheaval” sidelined his professional activity; last year, he had had “a new album almost done and an offer to produce for a completely mainstream artist on the table.”
Never the Right Time will be Stott’s first full-length album since his 2016 record Too Many Voices, and his first project since 2019 EP It Should Be Us. The nine-track LP will be out on April 16 via Modern Love.
