The Soft Pink Truth – “Wanna Know” (Feat. Jenn Wasner)

The Soft Pink Truth, the solo outing of Matmos’ Drew Daniel, is already set to release a limited CD and cassette-only mini-album on August 19 called Was It Ever Real?. Now, Daniel has announced another provocatively named project, this time in the form of an LP called Is It Going To Get Any Deeper Than This?. That one’s out October 21. Also out today is an electro-funk single featuring Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak, Flock Of Dimes) called “Wanna Know.”

“Years ago, a friend was DJing in a club and a woman came into the DJ booth and asked ‘Is it going to get any deeper than this?’,” Daniel says of the LP’s title. “And the phrase became a kind of mantra for us. What did she really want? This album was created as an attempt to imagine possible musical responses to her question.”
