On June 14th the message pictured below was posted on the Instagram account of the mysterious English collective Sault.
The announcement above was somewhat clarified on June 16th.
It came with a referral to the sault.global website. Upon following the link, a counter is displayed which (today) shows 105 DAYS LEFT OF NINE. 105-99=6, which probably means that the new Sault album NINE will be available on June 25th, 2021.
So, good news. Sault was responsible for the 2019 albums FIVE en SEVEN and last year’s fantastic albums Untitled (Black Is) and Untitled (Rise). All four albums come highly recommended.
