Soul Clap Announce New Album
Soul Clap have announced the details for their forthcoming album. Coming out on Wolf+Lamb, Soul Clap’s new album, entitled EFUNK will be released on April 20.
Having relocated to Miami to work on the album, their 45 minute, 13 track 12” is a statement. Coming off the back of their 2010 summer anthem ‘Extravaganza’, their loved DJ Kicks mix and some big remixes of DJ Harvey, Metronomy and Little Dragon, this album should only further cement their reputation.
To accompany the release, Soul Clap are in the midst of a world tour, taking in stops as diverse as Brazil, Japan, Singapore, London, and Tel Aviv.
