New music from Simon Green aka Bonobo is always an event, but when it heralds the arrival of a whole new album (his first since 2013’s The North Borders), it’s really something to get excited about. The masterful, magisterial ‘Migration’ is Green’s sixth album and it’s a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and beyond. The announcement of forthcoming Migration album is followed by the offering of lead track “Kerala”, out now on Ninja Tune via Inertia Music.
In particular, there is a theme on the upcoming album of migration, eruditely put by Green as “The study of people and spaces,” he expands, “It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and affect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.”
Bonobo’s new album ‘Migration’ is released through Ninja Tune / Inertia on January 13. You can watch the video for ‘Kerala’ below;
