HAAi Releases Her Highly Anticipated Debut Album Baby, We’re Ascending

London based artist, producer & singer HAAi – aka Teneil Throssell – releases her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Baby, We’re Ascending’. Released on the eve of her debut US tour, which includes shows in Miami, NYC, Philadelphia & at Detroit’s legendary Movement festival, the album is available to stream/purchase via Mute. Alongside the album, Teneil also unveils brand new single ‘Human Sound’, a stunning track that pairs British singer Obi Franky’s lush vocals with activist & poet Kai-Isaiah Jamal’s profound, gorgeous lyricism.

With community and collaboration being a key theme running through the LP, ‘Baby, We’re Ascending’ features an all-star line-up of contributors including Obi Franky, Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Jon Hopkins, Alexis Taylor & Moxie. Weaving her own vocals throughout the album, the LP was crafted alongside designer Raissa Pardini, mixing engineer Marta Salogni (Björk, Romy), engineer/producer Francine Perry, string arranger Quinta and creative director/long-time collaborator Imogene Barron.

Since the start of the year, HAAi has seamlessly transitioned from being one of the most in-demand DJ’s working today into becoming a singular creative force within electronic music. She covered Mixmag; released brand new collaborations with Jon Hopkins, Romy (the xx) & Fred Again…, debuted her new live show at London’s Corsica Studios this past Tuesday; was playlisted across UK radio; and played critically acclaimed, high-octane sets everywhere from Sonar Istanbul to Sydney Australia. Throughout it all, she has released some of the most thoughtful and innovative singles in recent memory to become a new vanguard of electronic music.

‘Baby, We’re Ascending’ will be available on Limited Special Edition Splattered Double Vinyl, packaged in a gatefold sleeve with fluorescent pink ink, spot gloss varnish and embossing. Further versions include Sky Blue Vinyl Edition, CD and digital.
