Labrinth asked people to send him everyday sounds to feature on his new track

Labrinth has revealed he is going to use chat-up lines and the sound of people kissing on his new track.

The producer and singer turned to help from the British public for his new track Project Noise, a collaboration with audio manufacturer Sennheiser, to find everyday noises that he could work with.

Labrinth told the Daily Mirror: "We asked the nation to send in everyday sounds for Project Noise so I could create some sick new sounds with them.

"The responses have been crazy! I'm getting ready to use them to create a very unique track. Are you ready?!"

The sounds sent in range from cooking sausages and screaming to flushing toilets.

Labrinth has been working with Dr Lauren Stewart, reader and co-director of the MSc in Music, Mind and Brain at Goldsmith's University. She has been analysing the sounds sent in, and thinks the project will be be a challenge for the musician as they are the sounds of everyday life that people would usually filter out.

She said: "This project will turn that on its head, as Labrinth makes these noises into something that people will invite in rather than block out, accepting it into their personalised sound zone.

"The public has definitely tried to challenge him and I've no doubt his production skills will be pushed to their limits. What is he going to do with these sounds? Will he try to create a narrative, piecing these random sounds together?

"And how will he deal with the fact that none of these sounds has anything like a beat?

"With a complete lack of narrative connecting these random noises, he will need to build his own whilst simultaneously adding a temporal dimension and layering sounds with timbres that are often curious but unsettling. It could be the next big thing..."
