To be out June 2nd.
French live performer Rodriguez Jr. just released a new LP, ‘Baobab’ on German label Mobilee. The ten-track album follows 2011’s ‘Bittersweet’.
“Baobab is about roots. It has mainly been written whilst travelling and I needed to re-connect to my roots: the music I used to listen to as a teenager from South Of France, my first parties, this fantastic sense of freshness, enthusiasm and innocence. This is why I decided to call it Baobab: a big tree proud to grow up in a lush surrounding, with it’s roots deep in the floor”, he commented.
In this new venture, Rodriguez Jr. collaborated with Nouvelle Vague’s singer and composer Liset Alea. He added, “The singer is a key part of this album as her voice is a link between different phases. The interaction in the studio has been extremely spontaneous and emotional”.
Before release date the artist has created an album’s minimix, condensing different aspects and colors of seven tracks into an 18-minutes session.
‘Baobab’ drops in stores on June 2nd. You can pre-order here.
