Haken guitarist Richard Henshall is now streaming his new single “Mu” from the upcoming Mu Vol. 1 EP, due out June 7. The EP is the first of three coming, which is great news – we could always use more Henshall prog weirdness in our lives!

The EPs will be released throughout 2024 and promise to be some of his most richly textured, adventurous music to date. Henshall is joined by drummer Lang Zhao and saxophonist Adam Carillio, while he handles guitar, bass and keyboard duties.

“I got the initial rhythmic idea for ‘Mu’ on a flight home from a Haken tour just before the lockdown kicked off in the UK,” said Henshall. “Little did I know that it’d end up being the catalyst for a trilogy of jazz-tinged, instrumental EPs.

“The rhythmic powerhouse, Lang Zhao, is on the drums and his highly creative playing style has really elevated these arrangements to new levels. This new collection of songs has a strong focus on rhythm and explores some new ground for me as a writer and guitar player. I can’t to share what I’ve cooked up with everyone.”

Pre-orders for Mu are available here.
