Here Comes Bonobo

Bonobo, otherwise known as Simon Green, announces sixth album and lays down an April-May trek across North America.  Destinations for the British producer/DJ/musician include Toronto, Boston, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis and Vancouver.

Arriving Jan. 13 on Ninja Tune, Migration includes appearances by Nick Murphy (Chet Faker), Rhye, and Nicole Miglis of Hundred Waters.  The first single from the LP is “Kerala.”

“The study of people and spaces,” Bonobo said about Migration’s thematic nature.  “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.”
