Clarence Clarity announces debut LP No Now, shares lead single "Bloodbarf"

Clarence Clarity has announced the release of his debut album, titled No Now, due for release 2 March via Bella Union.

The enigmatic producer, has also shared the lead single - "Bloodbarf" - in the form of a twisted video. The track is less tumultuous than previous material, but no less disturbing, with the video taking potshots at Justin Timberlake.

Clarity has also released a statement along with the album news. It reads like it should come from the booming voice of God, and seems to refer to the imminent end in the midst of an existential crisis. Will this be both the first and last album by Clarence Clarity?

“The NO NOW is my bubble of clarity. The ongoing wow hovering in stasis, with the blinds down and the world a forgotten dream. This album happened in that non-moment. Your past is what you make of it, and your future’s quite literally set in stone – and are you tired of chasing the present?

This album can be a constant reminder of the infinite flexibility of an absurd universe. You are free if you want to be. And there will be no shame. Don’t worry about leaving your mark – the cosmos couldn’t care less about Mozart or Einstein or Jesus of Nazareth. And even less about you.

But go for broke – when you’re lying on your death bed, looking out into that golden ocean sunset you’ll want something exciting to flash before your eyes – something good before the ultimate NO NOW.

This album is the exorcism of everything I’ve ever learned. Its all left me now – no more human condition left to give. This is the album I’ve had to make. And now I can bow out ungracefully – Creator and destroyer of my own worlds.

The NO NOW will never end, because it never began.

“I’m ready to die” - The Notorious B.I.G”
