black midi



Believe the hype; again. black midi return with Cavalcade, a wildly inventive and idiosyncratic new album. It's mega.

Cavalcade is a dynamic, hellacious and inventive follow-up to 2019’s widely-praised Schlagenheim.
Drift and a few other Indie retailers collectively curated a list of 5-10 songs for black midi to potentially cover. Fans voted for their favourite potential cover on black midi’s website. The winning track with the most votes was 'Love Story' by Taylor Swift! Black Midi then recorded Swifty's track especially to a Flexi Disc for us. Whilst stock lasts, we have a special edition LP package including said Flexi Disc cover, please select one in the Format drop-down menu above. One per customer.
Cavalcade scales beautiful new heights, pulling widely from a plethora of genres and influences, reaching ever upwards from an already lofty base of early achievements.
