Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti have finished working on a new studio album titled 'CARTER TUTTI PLAY CHRIS & COSEY'. This album mirrors the songs in their current critically acclaimed live performance set. That is... these are new reinterpretations and reworkings of classic Chris & Cosey songs from the 1980s and 1990s. The album will be available on gatefold CD, gatefold double-vinyl and digital. Each format version features an exclusive remixed track. Worldwide release date is 17th February 2015.
For their recent 2014 USA shows they released a tour CD album titled 'CARTER TUTTI REMIX CHRIS & COSEY' - which featured remixed versions of Cowboys In Cuba, Dancing Ghosts, Deep Velvet, October (Love Song) and Lost Bliss. A few remaining copies of the remix album were available in UK record stores during March but this limited run album has now sold out. It will be available again in digital format in 2015.
After this album release Chris and Cosey will be recording a brand new CARTER TUTTI studio album to be released in the latter part of 2015.
Read Cosey Fanni Tutti's new Dazed Digital interview and stream her very popular experimental decade-hopping hour-long mixtape.
From her work in music to her Dadaist performances, Cosey Fanni Tutti has been a pioneer of counter-culture throughout her career. Alongside her position at the forefront of the industrial music scene, she also worked as a stripper and adult model in the 70s – and her fascination with confronting female sexuality is a theme that has permeated her confrontational art ever since. As part of the collective COUM Transmissions (later reformed as the band Throbbing Gristle) and now recording as Chris and Cosey, her work has consistently explored what it means to exist simultaneously inside and outside of cultural norms. To celebrate Carter Tutti Void's live shows in London this week, we spoke to her about how her work both as a model and as an artist both engaged with and subverted conventions around the norms of cultural acceptability.

Cosey has been working on a new (as yet untitled) art film project and accompanying soundtrack during much of 2014. Recording and post production is due to continue over many more months to come, with the intention of presenting it in the latter part of 2015 or the early part of 2016.
