Glaswegian Christopher Duncan, better known as the 2015 Mercury Prize-nominated artist C Duncan, has revealed he’s been busy. In the time since the release of his debut album ‘Architects’ for FatCat Records, he’s been working on its follow-up, due out next month. ‘The Midnight Sun’ is set to be released on the Brighton label on the 7th of October.

The bedroom producer named his new album after one of his favourite episodes of The Twilight Zone, saying, “The Midnight Sun is also a real natural phenomenon, occurring in the Arctic Circle during summer, preventing the nights from ever being fully dark. Although not as extreme in Glasgow, during summer we often only get 3 or 4 hours between dusk and dawn. This has always had a profound effect on me mentally during these months, being more of a night owl myself, as it completely messes with my internal clock and confuses me year after year.” As a taster, Wanted to Want It Too’ is a quietly evocative number, with grand, sweeping synth lines. The song sits nicely with its minimalist, monochromatic promo video revealed last Friday. Watch the video below. For more on C Duncan on TGTF, head here.
