Four Tet performs at Styx on Oct. 23, 2015 in London. 

A simple beat is the backbone for a striking, plucked string on Four Tet?'s latest single “Two Thousand and Seventeen,” recently uploaded by the producer to SoundCloud. The exotic sound sends us traveling through time to the old stone streets of Italy or wandering the forests of ancient Asia.

A since deleted Tweet, quoted on Dancing Astronaut, alludes to a forthcoming album from the DJ and producer later this year. Listen to “Two Thousand and Seventeen” below, and let your mind explore distant lands.
