Last Friday Bonobo released his latest album “Fragments” which I have been very excited about since hearing it was in the works last year, and yes it is just as amazing as I was expecting it to be.
“Fragments” is an intoxicating 12-track collection of Bonobo’s signature atmospheric dance sound & style, and it also boasts a few cool guests including Jordan Rakei, O’Flynn, Jamila Woods, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Kadhja Bonet and Joji.
This is going to be a pretty tough album to beat, but if this is setting some kind of level for the year ahead, I can’t wait to see what else is in-store for us.
“Almost five years to the day since Migration. This is my seventh album and it’s been without a doubt the most difficult one to make. I’d honestly lost a little confidence somewhere over the past few years. That compounded with the whole mess of 2020 made the period of making this record an uphill struggle a lot of the time.
As much as it’s a document of a weird and uncertain time, it’s also about optimism and joy. I’m extremely proud of it and I hope that sense of optimism is felt
Huge, huge thanks to everyone who’s been a part of this album. Much love.”
