Matt Berry Announces Psychedelic Opus ‘The Blue Elephant’

It's out on May 14th...

Matt Berry has announced plans for new album 'The Blue Elephant'.

The ever-productive actor and musician returned only last year, with his album 'Phantom Birds' delving into his rural life.

Prompted by Dylan's Nashville recordings and the immediacy of his methodology, Matt Berry spoke to Clash at length last year about the project.

At the close of our conversation Matt Berry mentioned his ongoing psychedelic musings, and these form the backbone of his latest album.

Out on May 14th, 'The Blue Elephant' is billed as a real trip, a hallucinogenic celebration of his 10 year relationship with Acid Jazz.

New song 'Aboard' is online now, and it puts us in mind of those early 90s Blue Note breakbeat comps, all rolling drum fills and eerie synths.

Something totally different, you can check out 'The Blue Elephant' below.
