Douglas Dare announces forthcoming album, Omni

12 February 2024, 12:43 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

British artist Douglas Dare has announced the release of his fourth studio album, Omni, alongside the first taster, "Mouth To Mouth".

"Mouth To Mouth" sees a collaboration with label mate Daniel Brandt who appears on production duties, with beats supplied by Rival Consoles. Speaking on the track, Douglas Dare says, “life, death, fate and orgies; this is the heartfelt club track I always wanted to write.”

His new music has much in common with Arca and the late SOPHIE, two artists for whom self-expression meant liberation. “I got to hang out in the studio with her,” says Douglas of the latter musician, “the way she made music made a big impression on me.”

Omni is set to follow his last album, 2020’s acclaimed Milkteeth, and is about reconciling all those different sides of himself – the songwriter, the raver, the lover, the observer. It’s a hugely queer record: seductive, sexy, lusty, untethered from the genre binary.

He inhabits different characters across the songs, hence the title meaning ‘everyone and everything’. “I guess I've used other people to understand myself,” says Dare of Omni’s central theme. “It's like I'm trying to find myself in the universe.”

Omni will be released on 10 May via Erased Tapes, and is available to pre-order. Douglas Dare will be playing a headline show at London’s Corsica Studios on 9 May. Tickets are available now.
