Mute and Can are excited to announce the repress of Future Days on limited edition gold vinyl.
Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.
Future Days is the fifth studio album by Can. This is the last album to feature Japanese vocalist Damo Suzuki. On Future Days, the band explored the ambient direction they had introduced into their sound on the previous year’s Ege Bamyasi creating a landmark in European electronic music. Future Days is fiercely progressive, calming, complex, intense, and beautiful all at once.
The band’s powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance – from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled ‘Sing Swan Song’) and Radiohead – as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.
