In a link first tweeted out yesterday, highly revered British producer Four Tet announced a series of details for his seventh studio album Beautiful Rewind, due out soon on his own Text Records. This is certainly not the first time he’s surprised fans as such on Twitter.

He has also followed up with a full tracklisting (below) on his blog.
