Paul Haig \ The Wood [TWI 1239 / CD]


Les Disques du Crépuscule present The Wood, a brand new studio album by Scottish singer and songwriter Paul Haig, previously frontman with cult Postcard post punk legends Josef K.

Paul's fourth solo album for Crépuscule since 1983 was written and recorded over a three year period between 2015 and 2018, and explores glitchy, twisty sonic territories in the vein of Four Tet, Floating Points and Love Over Entropy.

'We can think of the wood or forest as a metaphor for the mystery of the human psyche,' says Paul. 'Like the human soul, it can be a place of hidden meanings and unrevealed secrets. I wanted to try and evoke this through the music and worked hard on finding the right balance of electronic and organic sound samples across a broad range of musical genres.'

Cover art by Kenris MacLeod. Layout by Emma Quinn Design. Available on CD, vinyl and digital (MP3). Vinyl includes digital copy. A limited edition (100 copies) in a bespoke wooden box is also available and includes the vinyl, CD, MP3, signed card, t-shirt and badge.
