Love and other planet, the second album from Adem, sees the London singer-songwriter taking the rule-book of contemporary folk he helped to write and systematically pulling it apart page by page. Upping the ante in terms of sonics and songwriting ambition, Adem has written a far-reaching and beautiful record, bound together by a truly universal concept. Space dominates 'Love and Other Planets', just as a warm hearth dominated Adem's celebrated first record 'Homesongs'.

The space around us, the space between us, the space within us, space as a metaphor and space as, well, just space; it is literally everywhere. ''Writing about one thing over the course of a whole album, makes a lot of sense to me, especially when the subject is as big as this,'' says Adem. ''The concept happened early on when I noticed that the songs I was writing were naturally similarly themed.'' The beats that pepper the record also draw upon the previously near invisible influence of electronic and dance music, with Adem using production techniques as an end in themselves rather than a means to make the instruments sound good together.
