As his highly anticipated autumn tour draws near, enigmatic folk-rocker Fink announces the release of double A-side Perfect Darkness/Berlin Sunrise. Produced by Billy Bush the smoldering atmospheric passion and melancholy of Perfect Darkness is beautifully matched with the uplifting and seductive Berlin Sunrise. Both songs have already become firm live favourites, and feature on Fink's recently released and critically acclaimed album Perfect Darkness. Hotly tipped vocalist and Ninja Tune label-mate Andreya Triana has recorded a stunning version of Perfect Darkness. Having previously worked with Fink on her 2010 album, Lost Where I Belong, the highly talented South London singer-songwriter lends a beautiful smoky soul to the bewitching Fink album opener, transforming it into an ethereal, dreamy lights-down anthem. Perfect Darkness has also been remixed by the upcoming, widely acclaimed producer Lapalux who has reworked the track into a five minute blaze of gloriously glitchy electronica reminiscent of Flying Lotus and James Blake. Legendary MyMy producer and Berlin-based DJ Lee Jones has been on remix duties for track Berlin Sunrise, lending a laid back, deep house groove and an understated euphoria to the intoxicating original vocal line.

As his highly anticipated Autumn tour draws near, enigmatic folk-rocker Fink announces the release of double A-side ‘Perfect Darkness/Berlin Sunrise'. It will be released on October 3rd in both digital and physical formats. See tracklistings below.

Produced by Billy Bush the smoldering atmospheric passion and melancholy of Perfect Darkness is beautifully matched with the uplifting and seductive Berlin Sunrise. Both songs have already become firm live favourites, and feature on Fink's recently released and critically acclaimed album Perfect Darkness. - “His fourth album often achieves such loveliness you don't want it to end." - "What a delight" Guardian 4*.

Hotly tipped vocalist and Ninja Tune label-mate Andreya Triana has recorded a stunning version of Perfect Darkness. Having previously worked with Fink on her 2010 album, 'Lost Where I Belong', the highly talented South London singer-songwriter lends a beautiful smoky soul to the bewitching Fink album opener, transforming it into an ethereal, dreamy lights-down anthem.

Perfect Darkness has also been remixed by the upcoming, widely acclaimed producer Lapalux who has reworked the track into a five minute blaze of gloriously glitchy electronica reminiscent of Flying Lotus and James Blake.

Legendary MyMy producer and Berlin-based DJ Lee Jones has been on remix duties for track Berlin Sunrise, lending a laid back, deep house groove and an understated euphoria to the intoxicating original vocal line.

On 23rd September Fink will embark on the 49-date Perfect Darkness tour, having teamed up with award-winning international designers 59 Productions, who have designed the visuals for smash hit West End and Broadway productions such as War Horse, as well as arresting stage shows for musicians such as Jónsi. Together they have devised a bespoke lighting installation and custom-shot projections, creating a totally unique and highly dynamic stage environment for the music. The 49-date tour will take in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Poland.

About Lee Jones :
Lee grew up in Essex, England, but can almost call himself a Berliner now, having moved there from London 8 years ago. During the late 90's, producing and performing as Hefner, he became involved with the post-drum and bass, downbeat, lounge sound of the time, remixing the likes of 4Hero, Cinematic Orchestra and Lamb, and releasing the albums Residue in 2000 and Blue for the Most (with Rachel Cuming as Abraham) in 2002. As a resident at the new Plastic People club, he first tried to find a way to express his musical taste in a club environment. When he moved to Berlin in 2002, inspired by the new soundtrack he discovered during long Kreuzberg nights, he formed MyMy and began to explore the world of house and techno. Together with Panorama Bar resident Nick Höppner, they toured in 27 countries and appeared on labels such as Ostgut Ton, Circus Company and Playhouse, where they released the album Songs for the Gentle in 2006. In 2010, after 5 years together, MyMy decided to go their own ways and to stop their monthly parties at Watergate where Lee had developed his skills as a DJ. He would now focus on establishing himself as a solo DJ and Producer, and one of Watergate's main residents.

About Andreya Triana :
An experimental and self taught singer and songwriter originally hailing from South East London, Andreya Triana grew up submerged in a multicultural atmosphere. A unique vocalist, Andreya began singing at the tender age of 7, taking influence from the sights and sounds of inner city London. 2006 saw her selected from thousands to take part in the Red Bull Music Academy in Australia where she further developed her style for improvisation and secured links with some of the best producers and musicians on the music scene. 2010 saw the release of her album 'Lost Where I Belong', produced by Bonobo, with fellow Ninja Tune singer and songwriter Fink also stepping up to co-write two tracks for the album. 'Lost Where I Belong' is a beautifully honest album combining Soul, Folk, Jazz and Bonobo's cinematic magic in a highly acclaimed debut... watch out for Andreya Triana!

About Lapalux :
Lapalux's abstract debut “Many Faces Out Of Focus” was released on cassette by Pictures Music and sold out in less than two hours. Having caught the attention of Dazed and Confused, who interviewed him for their August 2011 magazine, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs chose Lapalux's live set as support at his headline London show. Lapalux bathes your brain in lush textures, surprising and explosive atmospheres set in unencountered, unearthly spaces, all somehow perfectly set against catchy rolling choruses informed by pop and commercial R&B. He works fast; a constant stream of remixes, original tracks and excellent bootlegs is currently keeping fans happy. With a release on Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label in the works, and a huge positive response to his Gwen Stefani Luxurious bootleg, 2012 is sure to be Lapalux's break through year.
