BONOBO REVEALS NEW ALBUM, ‘MIGRATION’, LANDS IN JANUARY, HEAR ‘KERALA’

Also announces full world tour…

Bonobo has revealed that his sixth studio album, ‘Migration’, is set to be released on Friday 13th January. He’s also shared the video for ‘Kerala’ from it, which you can watch below.

Following the release of ‘Migration’, Bonobo will embark on a full world tour that begins in Hamburg on Wednesday 15th February 2017. Tickets go on sale on Friday 11th November.

‘Migration’ is the first new album from Bonobo – real name Simon Green – since ‘The North Borders’ was released in 2013. Speaking about his new material in a press release, he said, “My own personal idea of identity has played into this record and the theme of migration: is home where you are or where you are from, when you move around?”

First news of Bonobo’s new album came in January, when Green announced that he would be releasing it this year on Twitter. He’s also set to play an all-night-long set ahead of his world tour at London’s Studio Spaces for The Hydra’s autumn series on Friday 4th November.
