Cut Copy have announced details of ‘Haiku From Zero’, their first studio album in four years, which will be released on September 22nd (Virgin EMI/Astralwerks). The band have also unveiled the second single from the album, ‘Standing in the Middle of the Field’. Amid a backdrop of loping kalimbas, cowbells and bubbly synths, lead singer Dan Whitford’s plaintive voice offers some emotional advice: “You gotta give up the things you love to make it better.” The song announces a theme that percolates throughout ‘Haiku From Zero’ – the need to cut through the noise, a desire to focus.

“So much of this album is about this mosaic of information, images that we're surrounded by on a day-to-day basis,” says Dan Whitford. “Sometimes it feels like overload, but there's a weird random beauty in it. The idea of squeezing poetry from chaos was where the title of the album came from – the idea of finding something poetic in the overload.”

Written and recorded at studios around the world (Melbourne, Copenhagen, Washington, DC, New York, Atlanta), the nine tracks on ‘Haiku From Zero’ nonetheless present a united sonic front, due in no small part to the guiding ear of producer Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Neon Indian). Songs like “Counting Down” and “Living Upside Down” offer glimpses of beauty in a state of disco-fueled flux.
