It's been a while since we've heard from Graham Van Pelt, who recorded as Miracle Fortress and was also a member of Think About Life. Having moved from Montreal to Toronto, Graham will be releasing Time Travel, his first album under his own name, on October 19 via Arbutus. "I'd like to be as un-mysterious as I possibly can," Graham says of the new record which was influenced by Arthur Russell, house pioneers Larry Heard, Vincent Floyd and Maurizio, and current artists like Kelly Lee Owens. You can hear all that in terrific first single "Release Yourself" which premieres in this post. The video for the song was directed by Toronto's Fuego film collective and features Graham and other expressing "the joy of getting free." Watch that below.

Graham will be on tour in Europe with Kllo starting in early October, and then will tour North America, hitting Brooklyn's Alphaville on November 7 (tickets). Graham also has West Coast North American dates with Suuns in December. All dates are listed, along with album art and tracklist, below.
