Scott Herren's Savath + Savalas project has inked a new deal with Anti-, which will release the group's next album in early 2007. According to a post from the Prefuse 73 mastermind on his Web site, the album "has been in the making forever but is a couple of months shy of being completed."
The as-yet-untitled set will be the follow-up to 2004's "Apropa't," which debuted at No. 16 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart. "Aproppa't," and a subsequent EP, "Manana," were released by Warp; Savath + Savalas' 2000 debut, "Folk Songs for Train, Trees and Honey," was issued by Symbiotic.
Other upcoming projects include a soundtrack album featuring Herren's music for the Roger Gual film "Remake," due "whenever the time comes" via Cold Sweat Records, as well as contributions to "A Cloud Mireya" from vocalist Claudia Deheza. Herren and Deheza recently welcomed a son, Alejandro Elias.
In addition, Herren is "helping out Rush Japan on some production for some larger American MCs. This is not a Prefuse record by any means," he says on his site.
Meanwhile, Herren will join Andy Votel, Jazzman Gerald, Dante Carfagna and a host of other DJs for performances on Sept. 15 at a secret Los Angeles location and the next night at San Francisco's Mighty 119.Scott Herren; Savath + Savalas
