Floating Points announces Late Night Tales compilation

17 songs of “the kind of records I play to set the tone when DJing all night long”.

Floating Points has been announced as the latest artist set to curate a Late Night Tales compilation.

The new release, out on 29th March, is described as “17 personal tracks of global soul, ambient, jazz and folk treasures”. It features a handful of exclusive tracks, and is closed by a recital of Emily Brontë’s poem ‘Ah! Why, Because The Dazzling Sun’, read by Lauren Laverne.

“I’ve learnt about a lot of incredible music from listening to the Late Night Tales compilations over the years,” Floating Points (aka Sam Shepherd) says of the new release, “so I jumped at the opportunity to compile one myself. The music is a selection of the kind of records I play to set the tone when DJing all night long.”
