The Truth: Judging by his various releases thus far ALBERT GOLD must surely qualify as the most heartbroken man in Hackney. Over the past few frenetic years a stream of subtly supple tunes has proven him to be a brilliantly fresh songwriting talent backed by a yearning vocal range and a litany of rumpled relationships.

‘Satellite’ is his nonchalantly terrific new single, an exuberant, upbeat blast of sadfaced soulpop joy co-written with Sacha Skarbek and Florian Reutter in the comforting confines of Kensaltown Studios in West London – scene of many a productive Albert Gold session. ‘Satellite’ also points the way towards ‘MOODS’, Albert’s third EP, due on July 17th.

“’Satellite’ is one of my favourites on the ‘MOODS’ EP and probably the best song I’ve written so far in my career. It came from a really personal situation in my life, leaving a really destructive relationship which went on for about three years, on and off. The song gave me such strength to keep going, looking back now. I’m so happy I wrote this with Sacha and Flo, they really brought out everything I had. It’s possibly the highest I’ve ever sung and the most direct I’ve ever been.”

Albert Gold started this curious new year with a clattering single called ‘House Of Cards’, and he celebrated the release by bringing out his live band to headline The Social in January 13 as part of the Pandamonium ’20 Festival alongside shows by leftfield label mates such as China Bears, Italia 90 and MEMES.

‘Satellite’ is the third track from said forthcoming third ‘MOODS’ EP – “I listened a lot to the ‘Purple Rain’ album by Prince when working on it,” Albert reveals teasingly. ‘MOODS’ is also the final release in a trilogy of extended play ventures following the ‘Oxygen’ and ‘Second’ EPs. The first track was ‘GHOST’, which was co-written in a box in Stratford with David Gledhill, the man behind the www.facebook.com/soulsweare project, and which appeared in September with some suitably spooked remixes from Electronic State following fearlessly on Halloween.

Bolstered by live shows for Communion, Tipping Point, BMI / The Fix, London In Stereo, Sofar Sounds and Good Karma, and backed by consistent airplay support from Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and Gary Crowley at BBC Introducing London, Albert Gold has performed at Red Bull Studios in South London and released the ‘London Calling’ single featuring covers of cockney classics by Coldplay, The Clash and Blur. He also featured as vocalist on the jazz-flecked ‘Trouble’ single by Dutch producer Bakermat.

Albert Gold is currently self-isolating in a tower block on the Lea Bridge roundabout in downtown Clapton.
