Bonobo Announces New Album 'Migration,' Releases 'Kerala' Video: Watch
Bonobo has unveiled his plans for 2017, where the British producer will release his long-awaited follow-up album Migration, just three years removed from his 2013 studio effort The North Borders. Not only were fans gifted with the announcement of a full-length project today (Nov. 3), Bonobo dropped his 2017 tour dates in support of his forthcoming project and also released the accompanying visual to the album's first single "Kerala".
Nature and the euphoric feeling it evokes are often central themes behind Bonobo's past projects Black Sands and The North Borders and his upcoming album Migration, (out January 13th via. Ninja Tune) carries on the euphoric theme. "The study of people and spaces", Simon Green, the man behind the moniker Bonobo says of the album. "It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and effect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.”
The lead single "Kerala" -- which samples the R&B vocals of Brandy -- was weaved together during the producer's journey throughout the United States. The gripping visual sees a frantic woman shuffling through the streets as she tries to escape a meteor.
Watch the video for 'Kerala" below.
