In a unique partnership between a cutting edge electronic musician and a globally renowned charity, acclaimed English producer Kieran Hebden AKA Four Tet has announced that the first 1000 copies of his forthcoming new album will be sold in the UK via Oxfam.
New Energy is the ninth album to be released by Hebden under his Four Tet moniker – you can listen to a brand new track from the album titled Scientists below.
Like the album announcement, the Oxfam partnership was announced today via an unassuming tweet.

Four Tet’s previous album Morning/ Evening was released in 2015. Since then he has remixed various artists including the xx, A$AP Rocky and Oneohtrix Point Never, and released a compilation album called Randoms. Two other tracks he has recently released – Planet and SW9 9SL – are included on the tracklist for New Energy.
Fans have been quick to praise Hebden for partnering up with Oxfam for the release of his new album.
Showing the way…Ordered. Thank you. 👏🙏🏻

I just pre-ordered the new Four Tet album from Oxfam. More artists should follow his lead. https://t.co/WLPXlJzjoP
