After releasing a cryptic video via social media yesterday, the rumors have been confirmed. Simon Green, better known as instrumental downtempo, hip-hop and house producer Bonobo, has announced a new album, live band tour, and unveiled the stunning video for his lead single.
The British musician will release Migration via industry stalwart Ninja Tune on January 13, and follow that up with a bevy of European and North American dates from February through May. Gemma Arterton stars in the spookily apocalyptic video for “Kerala,” which is our first taste of the new sound from Green. No surprise here, that his signature smooth sonic aesthetic remains intact, with distinct nods to contemporary production techniques (particularly in the glitched and pitch-shifted vocal department).
Migration, the latest studio release since 2013's The North Borders, features Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker), Nicole Miglis (of Hundred Waters), and Rhye, among others. The album will be available as a double LP and CD set, as well as a digital download in early 2017.
Fans can pre-order the album now at bonobomusic.com and tickets will be on-sale for the tour to follow later this week.
