Age Of is the eighth studio album by American electronic producer Oneohtrix Point Never, released on June 1, 2018 on Warp Records. Recorded over two years, it features contributions from James Blake (who additionally produced and mixed the album), Anohni, Prurient, Kelsey Lu and Eli Keszler. It is the first Oneohtrix Point Never album to prominently feature Lopatin's own vocals. The artwork, which employs Jim Shaw's "The Great Whatsit" as a central image, was designed by David Rudnick
So it follows that, on his most apocalyptic record, Oneohtrix Point Never would sneak in a song meant to soundtrack a hypothetical Pixar movie. Age Of, the tenth studio album from the electronic artist Daniel Lopatin, spills over many of the formal and conceptual boundaries set by previous OPN records.
Oneohtrix Point Never's ninth album is not a concept album, though it deals, variously, with the rise and fall of man, an allegorical story by the French writer François Rabelais and a plot about omniscient AI or aliens who want to be as dumb as humans. Even as he's distanced himself from the notion of a concept album, Lopatin originally crafted Age Of's 13 tracks as a chronicle of four epochs depicting the Anthropocene. James Blake did away with that. If it weren't for James Blake being like, 'Shut the fuck up with your shit,'" Lopatin told Red Bull Radio. 'Save that for your cute little opera

Oneohtrix Point Never’s eight studio album Age Of, released on June 1st 2018, has been described as his most cohesive and richly composed project to date, weaving a tapestry of disparate musical histories. It was mixed and additionally produced by James Blake, and also features ANOHNI (whom Lopatin has previously produced for), Prurient, Kelsey Lu and Eli Keszler. The album cover, designed by David Rudnick, features Jim Shaw’s The Great Whatsit. The Japanese version of Age Of includes Trance 1 as a bonus track.
What Oneohtrix Point Never accomplishes on Age Of is similar to that of Garden of Delete. Age Of is abstract ear candy at its highest points, but is ultimately Oneohtrix Point Never's least realized album in some time. The vocal tracks in the front half are particularly an Achilles' heel.
In retrospect, his background as an archival science grad student makes perfect sense.
Two years ago, Daniel Lopatin was the last person onstage at the Pitchfork Music Festival. Someone at the festival had booked Lopatin’s Oneohtrix Point Never as counter-programming to FKA twigs, the festival’s final-night headliner. This move probably enraged at least a few fans of glitchy avant-synth music who were forced to choose one or the other. For me, though, it was perfect. For whatever reason, Lopatin kept playing for a lot longer than twigs did. Tired after a long festival weekend, I left and walked back to my hotel, alone
