Num­ber eight for Nitin

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Last seen in Ire­land when he was artist in res­i­dence at the Dún Laoghaire Fes­ti­val of World Cul­tures in 2004, Nitin Sawh­ney re­leases his eighth stu­dio album in Oc­to­ber.

Lon­don Un­der­ground fea­tures Sawh­ney col­lab­o­rat­ing with Natty, Reena Bhard­waj, Ojos de Brujo, Anoushka Shankar, Imo­gen Heap, Fa­heem Mazhar and Paul McCart­ney, with art­work by Antony Gorm­ley.

Sawh­ney says the album is his at­tempt to cap­ture the Lon­don he knows.

“Lon­don’s heart­beat has changed”, he says. “Within that heart­beat there lies a feel­ing, a col­lec­tive con­scious­ness, the unit­ing hum of dis­parate voices wait­ing to be heard.” “Lon­don Un­der­ground” is re­leased on Oc­to­ber 10.
