Over the summer, Cornelius shared his first album in 11 years, Mellow Waves. Previously available only digitally, the record will see a physical release early next year, which the Japanese producer will support with a North American tour.
CD, cassette, and vinyl versions of Mellow Waves are due out on January 26th. A limited edition deluxe LP package will feature a pop-up gatefold sleeve with a phenakistoscope animation insert. Pre-orders for both the standard and limited edition versions are going on now. What’s more, limited imports of the 7-inch singles “If You’re Here”, “Sometime / Someplace”, and “In a Dream” — previously only sold in Japan — will be available in retail stores on November 17th.
