Claptone announces new album with the release of "In The Night"

House's masked leader Claptone made a big announcement last night. With masked dopplegangers marching around London and New York City, along with a full DJ set livestream on his Facebook page, the German producer and DJ's team helped announce his newest upcoming project, an album entitled FANTAST.  The project, led by its first single "In The Night," featuring Ben Duffy on vocals, launches a hugely collaborative album. FANTAST promises features from Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, Blaenavon, Tender, Jones, Zola Blood, Austra’s Katie Stelmanis, The Boxer Rebellion’s Nathan Nicholson, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and others. But first, "In The Night" is classically Claptone, with an undeniable appeal to the underground, infectious piano, and this time, a groovy downtempo take on his usual disco and deep house. If the irresistible bassline is any sign of what's to come, this is going to be one of Claptone's best.

FANTAST is the first album from Claptone since 2015's Charmer, andis available for preorder. You can stream "In the Night" via multiple platforms.

“Over the last two years it has been a great pleasure to work on this album as a counterpoint to the hectic world of travelling as a DJ. To lose myself when making music, to dive into and create my very own realm of beauty. I admit it's a dreamy, a heartfelt, at times a naive and surely escapist album, but what to do if one – on the quest for his soul – develops a strong desire to go back to his roots, back to nature? Did I find myself on that journey? Rather not. But I found some beautiful moments in the green, out in the woods, out in the fields, under the moon and in the night, moments, which I want to share with you. And there is one thing I learned and now it can be told, I am and have always been a ‘Fantast’.”
