Lost But Never Alone ora mi sta dando sensazioni simili a quelle che mi danno di solito i Red House Painters. Questa non me l'aspettavo.

pezzo dell'anno?




When ROSALÍA first posted casual studio photos with Oneohtrix Point Never in late 2018, the prospect of a collaboration from two of the most singular voices in contemporary music set the internet alight and received speculative editorial from the likes of FADER and Rolling Stone.


In the intervening time, the two Artists have each added considerably to their growing bodies of work with various notable projects. In 2021 alone, OPN has been a frequent collaborator with The Weeknd; as musical director for his Super Bowl Halftime Show and also performed with him at last week's Brit Awards ("The Weeknd confirms what we always knew: Oneohtrix Point Never is a genius" - High Snobiety). While her primary current focus has been on recording sessions to complete her own highly anticipated next album, Rosalia has seen two other collaborative singles released this year. The long awaited "Lo Vas a Olvidar" with Billie Eilish, received wide global acclaim and "La Noche de Anoche" with Bad Bunny set a record for the most-ever debut day Spotify streams for a Spanish language song, reached #1 on Billboard's "Latin Airplay" chart, and was performed by the pair on Saturday Night live.


Today, OPN and ROSALÍA premiere a stunning reworking of OPN's "Nothing's Special".




"Nothing's Special" first appeared as the closing track on the highly acclaimed Magic Oneohtrix Point Never, but is re-imagined here with the inimitable combination of ROSALÍA's pristine vocal and OPN's elegant arrangement.


The eponymous album Magic Oneohtrix Point Never [listen] was released on October 30, 2020 - "an epic, drifting fantasia" - that includes a vocal from executive producer The Weeknd on "No Nightmares" [listen/watch], as well as further contributions from Caroline Polachek on "Long Road Home" [watch], Arca, Nate Boyce and Nolanberollin. New York-based filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie directed a video for Magic standout "Lost But Never Alone" [watch], a continuation of the collaboration between the Safdie brothers and OPN and following his celebrated scores for two of their iconic films "Uncut Gems" and "Good Time", for which he received the Best Soundtrack Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Assolutamente sì, ma lo dico anche prima di averlo ascoltato. Ma che collab pazzesca è? Me la sparo subito

In termini assoluti no, ma è innegabile che musicalmente il 2020 sia stato anche e sopratutto Magic OPN.

Just Announced: Oneohtrix Point Never - Again (Warp Records)
https://bleep.com/oneohtrix-point-never ... rp-records
Daniel Lopatin has long been a mercurial figure in many music worlds: from vaporific eccojams to the leftfield pop of Ford & Lopatin, and the eclectic and esoteric influences of his output as Oneohtrix Point Never. 2020's Magic Oneohtrix Point Never distilled all these styles into a radio-themed retrospective, but it's his latest album Again that truly represents the incredible OPN sound, exploding and examining it at its raw, pure core.
Like the alluringly visceral artwork made by artist Matias Faldbakken, Lopatin clenches and crushes sound firmly in his fist, then outstretches it in his palm as he details life condensed into a nonlinear slipstream.
Again is a glorious return to abstraction informed by Daniel Lopatin's popstar detours, a thrilling joyride we'll be wrapping our brains around for a while yet.

Oneohtrix Point Never, AKA Daniel Lopatin, has just shared "A Barely Lit Path" the first single/video from his just-announced new album Again (coming September 29 via Warp). The song serves as the album's climactic closer, bolstered by orchestra conducted and arranged by Robert Ames & performed by the NOMAD Ensemble. The video, directed by Freeka Tet from a treatment by Lopatin and Tet, presents the harrowing tale of a pair of anthropomorphized crash test dummies.

Again is in part "a speculative autobiography," that germinated as a collaboration between Lopatin's current and younger selves— a meditation on his musical identity during young adulthood from the perspective of middle age. Since his last album, 2020's Magic Oneohtrix Point Never, Lopatin has served as musical director for The Weeknd's 2021 Super Bowl Half-Time performance, composed and performed the music for Chanel's 2021 Métiers d'art show, and served as executive producer on The Weeknd's worldwide #1 charted album, Dawn FM (he also performed on a majority of the songs on the album). Again's artwork features an original sculpture by Matias Falkbakken, conceptualized in concert with Lopatin and photographed by Vegard Kleven. Design and packaging was developed by Memory, a newly formed collaboration between Lopatin and Online Ceramics (Elijah Funk & Alix Ross).

L'album si trova ed è molto buono, impegnativo per intero ma ha un bel feeling.
