Nice. I hope it's closer in line with 1 or 2 than 3, which I thought was a slight drop off in quality.

3 was ok, but felt like a completely different sound compared to the first 2 releases. Xerrox 1 & 2 are absolute classics.

For sure - I definitely liked 3 but it was no 1 or 2 ... The third one really reminded me of the OST to an indie game called Knytt Underground:

HOLY SHIT LET'S GO

Here's what the tracklist seems to be, based off of the Instagram post:

01 Xerrox Kirlian (06'12'')

02 Xerrox Neige (04'56'')

03 Xerrox Voyage (03'50'')

04 Xerrox Plongée(?) (05'36'')

05 Xerrox Cosmos (03'52'')

06 Xerrox Ile(?) (06'24'')

07 Xerrox Argo (05'32'')

08 Xerrox Calypsoid 1 (04'33'')

09 Xerrox Canaux (04'14'')

10 Xerrox Utopia (03'06'')

11 Xerrox Sans Retour (04'26'')

12 Xerrox Calypsoid 2 (11'06'') (!!!)

13 Xerrox Apesanteur (04'32'')

14 Xerrox Néant (02'54'')

Total length (if I got the track times right): 1:11:02

...Effectively making this the longest Xerrox release, beating Volume 2 by like five minutes. Can't friggin wait, omg.

Here's some neat information for Volume 4 for anyone curious:

https://inverted-audio.com/feature/alva-noto-reflects-on-his-collaborations-with-ryuichi-sakamoto-anne-james-chaton/

from the end of this interview:

And what are your plans for next year?

Right now I’m starting to record ‘Xerrox Volume 4’ – I’ve already started working on it for a couple of months….the obsession with copying and more melodic ambient non rhythmic stuff. I would love to finish that by the end of the year and then maybe put it out by the end of March 2020.

They seem to be getting more melodic these Xerrox releases?

Yes, at the beginning they were more experimental and noisy. Volume 3 was much more melodic in a way and less experimental. I became very interested in more of a cinematic experience of the Xerrox pieces so I’ve been creating something that would work like a soundtrack and I think this is the reason as well that I was involved in ‘The Revenant‘ soundtrack. We are planning a really interesting show for Xerrox in London in 2020, I’m not sure if I can mention it but…

also here's the album cover, confirmed on his insta back in january :)

      New artist and forthcoming release on Alva Noto's label next year, single released today. 
      Quite stripped down and minimal, brings to mind Ø and Raime a little bit. "I like it. It's got that it's-a-cruel-world-let's-throw-ourselves-in-the-abyss type ambience."

      On mobile, too lazy to copypaste it all out. Whatever. Cool!
       
      Also this is coming out on the same day as the other recently announced Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto album. Damn.
