Mike Lindsay and Anna B Savage have revealed their latest collaborative effort - the new single "pretender to surrender" - lifted from his forthcoming debut solo album, supershapes volume 1.

Speaking more on new single "pretender to surrender", Lindsay said: "This track is a battle between two Meters: 3/4 and 4/4, each one surrendering to the other, then fighting again to be bolder. In the studio Anna and I wanted a stream of consciousness list of everyday objects and rituals that keep going and going until you’re engulfed by domestic and majestic supershapes. Cucumbers feature a lot in this song."

On collaborating with Mike Lindsay on supershapes volume 1, Anna B Savage said: "Working with Mike on his supershapes project will forever be one of my favourite endeavours. Any excuse to work with him more was gonna be leapt on by me, and in particular to think he wanted me to work on something is just too much for my little heart to handle. We had (and have) so much fun. What more could you want."

One half of LUMP with Laura Marling and co-founder of pioneering UK acid folktronica band Tunng, elsewhere Mike Lindsay is known for producing Speech Debelle's Mercury Music prize winning album, Speech Therapy, along with his work with Jon Hopkins, DuBlonde, Songhoy Blues and more recent production for Dana Gavanski, Meadow Meadow and William Doyle.

Lindsay's debut album is the first instalment in a series of solo records that will explore “the miraculous in the mundane”, with supershapes volume 1, looking widely at “everyday domestic objects, the daily rituals that shape us, heavily focusing on the majestic in the domestic”.

supershapes volume 1, is set for release on 14 June via Moshi Moshi Records.
