Fred again.. has shared his new track ‘Jungle’ with Four Tet – listen below.

The propulsive new single, which features a production co-credit from Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden, samples Elley Duhé’s 2017 track ‘Immortal’.

Posting a clip to Instagram of him playing the song live, Fred again.., real name Fred Gibson, wrote: “Absolute love to my real life friend / tension shaman / pre-date morale booster / unofficial live agent @fourtetkieran for makin this wit me. And of course the unreal voice of @elleyduhe.”

Elley Duhé commented: Let’s go FRED!!!!!!!!! Ain’t no love in the jungle!!!!”

Listen to the track below.

Fred again.. also collaborated with I. JORDAN on ‘Admit It (U Don’t Want 2)’ in February, describing the process as “an effortless joy” in a press statement.

“We made it in like three sessions and finished it on the rooftop where I live. It was sick that like while we were working on it India [now I. JORDAN] could go and road test it and we ended up evolving the tune based on the reaction.”

Fred again..’s first single ‘Kyle (I Found You)’ was released in late 2019, a dance track featuring spoken word poet Guante. His Actual Life EP was released in May 2020, followed by Actual Life 2 (February 2- October 15 2021) in November 2021. The bonus track ‘Marea (We’ve Lost Dancing)’, from the first Actual Life, became a lockdown anthem.

The electronic music producer recently spoke to Rolling Stone UK about the process of increasing his visibility as a solo artist, having produced produced songs for the likes of Ed SheeranStormzyBTSHalseyRita Ora and FKA twigs.

“When I was doing tunes when I was younger, it was always kind of anonymous and faceless,” he said. “But it was obvious when I started doing this that I wanted it to be the exact opposite of that. I crave the intimacy and the humanity of it.”

He also spoke about his relationship with playing electronic music live. “Electronic music and live shows still does not know itself. When I was first working out how to do this, I was stunned to learn how embryonic and unsolved it is,” he said.

“There needs to be jeopardy. There needs to be a sense of risk. It needs to feel like it could fall apart, otherwise it’s something else. If you feel a sense of, ‘This is tangibly happening in front of me, and if he didn’t do that, it would fall apart,’ that’s the excitement of the experience.” 

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone UK, Swedish DJ Alesso named Fred again.. as a new artist on his radar. “It’s such a vibe. Love the stuff,” he said.
