loud Atlas creator David Mitchell is to handle the account of "the most peculiar British band you've never known about" in his first novel for five years, Utopia Avenue.
Reporting the book, which will be discharged next June, Mitchell cited the proverb that "expounding on music resembles moving about design", saying that Utopia Avenue originated from it.

"Melodies (for the most part) use language, yet music connects straightforwardly to something beneath or above language. Could a novel made of words (and not fitted with inherent speakers or Bluetooth) investigate the silent puzzles of music, and music's effect on individuals and the world? How?" Mitchell inquired. "Is it conceivable to move about engineering all things considered? Utopia Avenue is my somewhat weighty wound at an answer."

Utopia Avenue will tell the "unexpurgated story" of a British band of a similar name, who rose up out of London's hallucinogenic scene in 1967 and was "fronted by society artist Elf Holloway, guitar diving being Jasper de Zoet and blues bassist Dean Moss", said distributer Scepter.

"Utopia Avenue discharged just two LPs during its brief and bursting venture from the clubs of Soho and drafty assembly halls, to Top of the Pops and the cusp of outline achievement, to magnificence in Amsterdam, jail in Rome and a decisive American fortnight in the pre-winter of 1968," said the distributer, including that the book would recount "revolts in the boulevards and upheavals in the head; of medications, hooligans, frenzy, love, sex, passing, craftsmanship; of the families we pick and the ones we don't; of acclaim's Faustian agreement and fame's shaky stepping stool".

The exposure asks: "Would we be able to change the world in fierce occasions, or does the world change us? Utopia signifies 'no place' however could a shinier world inside handle if just we had a guide?"

Utopia Avenue pursues Slade House (2015) and The Bone Clocks (2014), which was longlisted for the Booker Prize. His past novels incorporate Cloud Atlas – No 9 in the Guardian's main 100 books of the 21st century – and number9dream, which were both shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
