Calibre announces new album ‘Feeling Normal’
Multi-talented artist Calibre today shares his 16th studio album ‘Feeling Normal’. The album is out now to pre-order on Vinyl, CD and on digital platforms via his own independent imprint Signature Recordings.
The ‘Feeling Normal’ LP is his first original 140bpm record and an amazing body of work that shows the genius levels of one of electronic music’s most respected artists. Comprising of 13-tracks, Calibre transcends through space and time, creating music that will take listeners on an unparalleled auditory journey. The album announcement is accompanied by two dubs ‘Bad’ and ‘Badder’ deconstructed from the track ‘Badman’ with DRS from Mark Ernestus available via his Hardwax store January 29th and Bandcamp February 12th (pre-order from here).
“Getting to work with Mark Ernestus is a real honour, I collected Basic Channel, Rhythm & Sound and his other work for many years and still do. It’s hard to avoid the influence of this guy in electronic music across genres and so it is a real pleasure to have him do his thing with the Badman tune which I think sounds closely related.” – Calibre
All of the tracks on the album have been road-tested in Calibre’s DJ sets over the last 2/3 years with many of them being sought by diehard fans. It was only a matter of time before he released them for everyone to enjoy time and time again.
With a nod to the dancefloor, the idea for the album came about following the release of his most personal album to date ‘Planet Hearth’. “It still works in the headspace but ultimately it’s been written for the sweaty club experience we miss now, also after an album like ‘Planet Hearth’ it felt very liberating to do,” he remarks. When writing albums, he often just puts it down to the general chaos of life, not naming any particular influence but generally just waiting to see what comes naturally. With one of the tracks on the album written 7 years ago on the island of Valentia, it became a project that he spent the following years collecting music for.
“The whole album is special to me, everything on there has import and meaning beyond for me, I have spent much time on all these and hope they are special for other people too.” – Calibre
‘Feeling Normal’ is a musical masterpiece that the whole world needs to hear!
