from the press release:
Maya Jane Coles, the multi-award winning 26 year old British-Japanese producer/DJ, starts another new chapter in her remarkable career as she releases the deluxe version of her debut album “Comfort” on March 24, 2014 on her own I/AM/ME label.
“Comfort” was originally released in July 2013 on I/AM/ME after Maya turned down the major label check books to retain total creative freedom. This acclaimed record was entirely produced, engineered and mixed by Maya who also wrote or co-wrote every track. Alongside Maya's own vocals the album features guest vocal performances from the likes of the legendary Tricky and electronic goddess Miss Kittin through to newer talents such as Nadine Shah and Alpines.
The album also includes the vocal talents of Thomas Knights on “When I'm in Love” who also directed the somewhat controversial videos to the album’s singles “Burning Bright” ft Kim Ann Foxman and “Everything” ft Karin Park. The latter video featuring taxidermy by artist Harriet Horton.
This new deluxe version of “Comfort” is available on both vinyl and digital formats and includes five additional tracks. Alongside formerly released fan favorite tracks “Over” and “Protect Them” the album also includes previously unreleased material in “Lost In The City”, “Stand Still” and “Keeper”. All five tracks are produced, engineered, mixed and played by Maya including vocals where present.
To coincide with the deluxe album release a brand new video for the album's title track “Comfort” will be debuted shortly. The “Comfort” video is directed by Jonas Lorde who assisted Director Thomas Knights on both previous videos. It explores metamorphosis through various forms of being. We'd say more but we think it's best if you just see it for yourself.
Here is a preview clip of "Stand Still":
