Scotland's C Duncan (aka Chris Duncan) has announced a new album, Health, and shared its first single, "Impossible." Health is Duncan's third album and is due out March 29 via FatCat. It was produced by Elbow's Craig Potter. Check out "Impossible" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art.

Health follows 2015's Mercury Prize-nominated debut, Architect, and 2016's Twilight Zone-inspired sophomore album, The Midnight Sun. His first two albums were bedroom-recorded affairs, this is the first album recorded with other producers, engineers, and musicians.

"This was the biggest shift in dynamic for me," Duncan says in a press release, "having always worked alone, it was a daunting prospect but one I knew I had to explore." 

"Impossible" is about the challenges Duncan had making a long distant relationship with an ex-boyfriend work. Duncan explains in the press release: "At one point he was working night shifts, so it was very hard to communicate with each other because our schedules were completely out of sync. I wanted to see him all of the time, but it was impossible to do at that point in time." 

Duncan also had this to say about the album in a press release: "With album three, I wanted to take a more direct approach, adding even more layers but thematically and lyrically laid bare. Having someone else to bounce production ideas off was really eye-opening for me. In the past, I had been very controlling about how everything would sound but Health really showed me the benefit of working with others and made the whole process much less isolating."
