Originally released as a limited edition cassette in May 2020, Second Spring announces the official vinyl release of Desire to remedy the fact that the original limited run of cassettes are sold out and to offer listeners the album in the physical format for which these songs were always conceived as being heard. Desire has been mastered for vinyl and features the original album artwork expanded for vinyl and includes an accompanying text from Asesina Hudson’s novella Blob.
Desire was recorded intermittently over the winter of 2018/2019 at studios in Vancouver and Winnipeg, and mixed/mastered by Jay Arner. As the first release under the name Fortunato Durutti Marinetti, Desire also marks a distinct shift towards greater collaboration and expanded instrumentation: violin, cello, keys and backing vocals feature prominently. Lyrically the album draws on such sources as Joan Didion, Chris Marker films, Georges Battaile, FASTWURMS, Chris Kraus, and Paul Auster in order to ruminate on desire as a part of life that can be both joyful and painful.
