Fuzz, the psych-rock project of Ty Segall, guitarist Charles Moothart, and bassist Chad Ubovich, have announced their first album in five years. Entitled III, the eight-track affair is due out 23 October through In The Red records.
The trio have supplied a first taste of their latest album with the release of the single Returning, take a listen below.
Speaking on Returning in a statement, Fuzz described the song as “an auditory meditation on the power of one and the different perspectives of one”, relating the song to the band’s long-awaited return.
“Whether it is the singular person looking inward, or a group of people coming together as a single unit. As the opening track of the record, it serves as a sort of mission statement or mantra for the album. Not only is it an echo of the return of Fuzz, but also a broader return to form – raw and empowered through vulnerability.”
III was recorded to tape and mixed under the “sonic lordship” of esteemed engineer Steve Albini at United Recording in Los Angeles, California. In order to maintain a focus on the Fuzz’s live sound, Albini encouraged a minimum in overdubs and studio trickery.
This isn’t the first time that Segall and Albini have crossed paths, as the engineer also recorded Segall’s 2017 self-titled record.
III by FUZZ is available for pre-order now through intheredrecords.com
