William Doyle announces first album in four years with Brian Eno collaboration "Design Guide"

04 September 2019, 10:03 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

William Doyle has announced his first LP in four years, Your Wilderness Revisited, alongside revealing a new Brian Eno collaboration "Design Guide".

"Design Guide" is the third single from Doyle, after last year's "Millersdale", and "Nobody Else Will Tell You", both of which will feature on Doyle's new record.

Speaking about his new record, which is his first since 2015's East India Youth release Culture of Volume, Doyle says, "“This album has been rattling inside of me for over 10 years now. When I left the suburb I spent my entire teenage life in, I started to think back to it and notice the influence it had on me, on my art, and on my development as a person. The architecture and the planning of the modern British suburb influenced this album as much as the experiences and emotions I superimposed upon that landscape at a formative age. I started creating in these places, I started to expand myself in these places, I grappled with grief and loss in these places. I realised that I wouldn’t be alone in having these experiences here, and so I thought there should be a way of redefining or reimagining these places that painted a different picture of them in our collective consciousness. These weren’t just places to escape to the nearest city from – perhaps they held as much truth and beauty in them as anywhere else. This album is, in part, an interrogation and excavation of that truth and beauty."
