It's a meditation on ageing...

Gruff Rhys has shared new single 'Mausoleum Of My Former Self' - tune in now.

The Welsh artist's new album 'Seeking New Gods' will be released on May 21st, available digitally and on vinyl.

Alongside this, Gruff Rhys has teamed with BBC Research & Development for a special immersive version of the album, which launches on release day via BBC Taster.

New single 'Mausoleum Of My Former Self' is a charming return, matching Gruff's innate grasp of psych-pop melody to a slightly downcast lyric.

A meditation on ageing, the production from Mario C is packed with light.

Gruff says the track is about “human ageing – people become different people but they’re still an avatar for who they used to be.”

Tune in now.
