Maps Streams Susanne Sundfor Remix Of Single 'A.m.a' Out 24th June 2013

'A.M.A.', the first single and opening track from the new album 'Vicissitude' (out on 8th July through Mute) is available as a limited edition 12" vinyl and download.

The digital download features a remix by the Norwegian songwriter Susanne Sundfør who has collaborated previously with Maps and recently featured on the M83 soundtrack for the film 'Oblivion'.

The hand stamped 12", available exclusively through Rough Trade, features the original version, previously one of Rough Trade & The Guardian's Tracks of the Week, alongside remixes from Dutch electronic artists Legowelt and fellow Mercury nominees The Invisible as well as a remix from Maps himself. Pre-order the 12" here.

'A.M.A.', from its opening click-thump drum track and its summery cascading chorus, is a perfect introduction to two of the main themes from the new album - change and hope.

'A.M.A.' follows the exclusive limited edition 12" release of 'I Heard Them Say' via Boomkat. Backed with remixes by Andy Stott and Maps, the 12" sold out immediately.

While previous album 'Turning The Mind' swung like a hedonistic after-party held after Maps' debut 'We Can Create''s Mercury Prize nomination, 'Vicissitude' has the distinct feeling of digging deep and confronting reality head on. And in each of those cases, with Chapman the sole creative force behind the music, any Maps album is defined entirely by where his head was at during the recording process.

'Vicissitude' focuses, tightens and sharpens Maps' expansive sound. The album might have been born from a long period of self-contemplation, but maybe you do need a while to get simple answers to the difficult questions. Time to face the light.
