About this item
GUT, the brand new album from Ivor Novello winning musician and composer Daniel Blumberg.
An unflinchingly raw and personal album. A suite of six songs performed entirely by Blumberg comprising an extraordinary, soaring vocal take and an unconventional palette of bass harmonica, Steinberger ebass, synthesiser and electronic drums. The album makes reference to the intestinal disease Blumberg has suffered over the last few years, its songs tracing a body stripped back and rebuilt: renderings of pain, frustration and fatigue in ballads made sinew and bone.
New York director Brady Corbet (Vox Lux, Childhood of a Leader) has made a film to the album shot on 16mm, which will be released at a later date.
GUT is Blumberg’s third solo record on Mute following the release of Minus (2018) and On&On (2020), as well as his award winning score for the film The World To Come (dir. Mona Fastvold, 2021).
