MATTHEW HERBERT FINDS ALBUM INSPIRATION IN TESCO

No stranger to creating music out of everyday objects, Matthew Herbert has announced that his latest album will use recordings from sounds made by Tesco’s best-selling items.

The album, named after the supermarket, features eight tracks made using sounds from popular products and will be released under Matthew’s moniker Wishmountain on August 6.

It’s not the first time food has been a part of his music. With his 2005 album 'Plat Du Jour' he sought to highlight the global and political nature of food, with many samples coming from food-themed items, such as over 3,000 people biting into apples at the same time.

Matthew says the album was put together in four days, and describes the supermarket as “a place of fantasy, trickery, wonder and horror.” You can find all four in the cereal aisle.

'Tesco' is out August 6 on Accidental Records.

Tracklist:
01. Lucozade
02. Nescafe
03. Kingsmill hovis and warburton
04. Fruit shoot
05. Dairy milk
06. Walkers
07. Andrex
08. Coke
