A 12″ one-sided vinyl with a beautiful silk-screened B-side, this is record is meant to be a collector's item. Side A consists of Yazz’s music, while Side B is all about Sophie’s artwork, a whirlpool of fish and souls, which, when played, spins backward into the sea. Fans who pick the second pledge level will get a limited-edition hand-numbered album plus a print of the cover art, signed by Yazz. The third pledge tier marks the first time a Yazz Ahmed test pressing has ever been available to buy. Move fast to grab a little piece of Jazz history!

“I was already thinking about the migrants who perished at sea when I named the chapter The Shoal of Souls, and this new composition is dedicated to all the people who have lost their lives crossing the sea in search of a better future. I hope the music conveys the strength and power of the human spirit, the bravery to risk everything for their families, the anger I feel at the response of the West, a lack of empathy, a lack of compassion. They are not a swarm, they are us – humans. The music is also inspired by Sufism, the idea of whirling and turning, falling into a trance, a dream. I see a mirror with the whirling, turning ocean, a whirlpool of lost souls, of untold stories, talents and lives unfulfilled, joining together in the eternal dance and rhythm of a vast shoal of fish which seems to beat like a heart.” – Yazz Ahmed
