Pole - Tempus
Mute is excited to announce the release of Pole’s new album Tempus, out November 18th on limited edition double pink vinyl (1k copies worldwide), double black vinyl, CD and digital formats.
Pole is Düsseldorf-native musician, producer and mastering engineer Stefan Betke, and is known for his unique musical language oscillating between melody and avant-garde in electronic music, with audible influences from Dub and Jazz music. While the subject of his critically acclaimed 2020 Fading focussed on coping with dementia and the loss of memory over time, Tempus focuses on the connection between the past, the present and the future.
Translating to tense in English, Tempus investigates whether music that was created in the past, can still be audible and influential for the present, and how much can this music shine into the future.
