Produced in partnership with Matthew Herbert, in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, Merz’s new album No Compass Will Find Home is released on Accidental Records on January 7th 2013. Eagerly anticipated album amongst Merz’s international fan base, the album track TOY has already attracted media attention, the song receiving heavy rotation from US station KCRW and listed by The Guardian as one of the Best Tracks of 2011.

Described by Merz as “A big bowl of Romanticism and a rush of Rousseau-esque rhythms”, the album features notable musicians Gyda Valtysdóttir (founding member of Icelandic band Múm), London guitarist & composer Leo Abrahams and Swiss drummer Julian Sartorius. Musically the album appears to hark back to the adventurism of Merz's eponymous debut in 1999, and while his last album Moi et Mon Camion (2008) was an homage to his English roots, this latest long player is harder to pin-down. Recorded in Switzerland, No Compass Will Find Home is a progressive, wild and ragged record with a unique kind of psychedelia. This special edition comes on a clear see through 12" with additional bonus tracks including a remix by Dimlite.
