After the huge critical acclaim of 2012’s Fallen By Watchbird, followed by 2015’s exploratory Silver Globe LP winning her unanimous “record of the year accolades” and hefty measures of radio play-listing.

Can’s Malcolm Mooney features on the album, as well as a extended cast of Mancunian drummer and guitarists fleshing out the album’s sound.

Listen to lead track Slow Motion from the forthcoming album. The Quietus has said: The track is an airy slice of cosmic pop, and a perfect introduction to the new album. Her songs, Weaver says, come to her “like fully-formed pictures”, with Modern Kosmology having given her the opportunity for the first time to focus uninterrupted on recording a studio album, this marking her sixth record, and a recording process that saw her putting all-analogue vintage machinery to use.
