Owen Pallett Announces New Album 'In Conflict' Out On 12th May 2014

We are pleased to announce the new album from Owen Pallett, In Conflict, on May 12th 2014 in the UK (May 13th in the US).  In Conflict was written and produced by Pallett, recorded with the core rhythm section of Robbie Gordon and Matt Smith, and features contributions from Brian Eno and The Czech FILMharmonic Orchestra, amongst others.
 
In Conflict is full of love songs - more specifically, songs about liminal states and our loved ones locked in battle with them.  "The record is meant to approach 'insanity' in a positive way," Owen says - emphasis on the ironizing scare quotes around singular notions of insanity.  "Depression, addiction, gender trouble, and the creative state are presented as positive, loveable, empathetic ways of being.  Not preferable, per se, but all as equal, valid positions that we experience, which make us human."
 
Pallett was recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score, alongside Arcade Fire, for their work on Spike Jonze's Her.  While Pallett has served as a versatile collaborator to many projects in both pop and art establishments- the list is far too long to recite here, but you know where to look- he is equally beloved for his accessibility; for the way his art reflects & resonates with Mainstream Pop Culture; for the emotionally cathartic outlet his music provides.
