It’s the latest EP to be shared ahead of the full compilation release on 19 November.

Coldcut have shared the third and final teaser EP lifted from their forthcoming ambient compilation @0. Entitled EP3, the new offering was released today (25 October) and features Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto alongside James Heather.

Sakamoto contributes a new live recording of his 1999 track Aqua to the EP, and in turn the larger project. The live version was originally performed as part of his Playing the Piano for the Isolated concert film. Meanwhile, Heather shares a new strings version of And She Came Home.

“I feel very lucky to be a part of this stunning compilation put together by Coldcut for three very worthy causes,” said Heather in a statement. “I hope the music from all the artists involved here brings much solace to anyone who comes by it”.

Ninja Tune founders Coldcut announced @0 earlier this month. The 29-track project features new recordings by Skee Mask, Helena Hauff, Juliana Barwick, Sigur Rós, Laraaji, Suzanne Ciani and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, among others. The compilation will raise proceeds for charity, with Ninja Tune donating its share of profits to CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), Mind and Black Minds Matter.

@0 will be released on 19 November via Ninja Tune sub-label Ahead Of Our Time. Pre-order it here and listen to EP3 below.
