Chad Valley has announced his debut full-length, Young Hunger, featuring collaborations with Twin Shadow, Glasser, Active Child, El Perro Del Mar, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs + more. Released on October 30 via Cascine (US) & November 19 on Loose Lips (UK), the LP follows his last year’s Equatorial Ultravox.
“It’s an ’80s record in every sense,” says Manuel about his euphoric new outing. “Overdue, over-budget…!” This is the 1st time Chad Valley used a professional studio, & worked with a producer. Young Hunger is a personal record at heart & Manuel admits his lyrics & vocals on earlier Chad Valley releases were mostly guided by sound & feel rather than meaning. Last year he toured N. America with Active Child + Com Truise, after making a set of debut performances at SXSW & in NYC. After touring the UK with Friendly Fires + SBTRKT, & performances in Asia, he released a string of remixes for Noah & The Whale, The Drums + Lana Del Rey in between putting the finishing touches on this new album. Chad Valley will return to the states in October for CMJ ‘12.
