The Super Limited LP is housed in a deluxe handmade hardback gatefold sleeve with booklet and images from renowned photographer B+.
The resulting album, 'A New Constellation', is out on Tru Thoughts; in characteristically mercurial fashion this new outing sees Holland following up the explosive, worldly electronic and vocal direction of his hugely acclaimed last solo album, 'Magnetica', with a suite of traditionally recorded pieces that capture the spontaneous beauty in the old ways of music making. His thirst for musical exploration has seen British born Holland release over 15 albums - ranging from electronic solo productions via the full live funk and soul bands the Quantic Soul Orchestra and the Combo Bárbaro to Latin, African and Caribbean styles - and become renowned as one of music's modern trailblazers. On moving to New York in early 2014, he started rediscovering his love affair with instrumental jazz and soul records in which the studio ensemble takes the spotlight. He has previously collaborated with Aloe Blacc, Alice Russel, Anita Tijoux and Sharon Jones. He decided to record a full length album paying homage to recording in this classic sense and also to collaborate with many of the musicians that he had worked with in the city of Los Angeles - these revered musicians included Brandon Coleman, Todd Simon, Sylvester Onyejiaka, Wilson Viveros and more.
