Watch Bonobo’s new video

The track is part of his new upcoming album, Migration.

Simon Green AKA Bonobo  just premiered the second single ‘Break Apart (feat. Rhye)’  of his new LP to be out on January 2017.

The song illustrates the transitory nature of the album and also shows how deftly broad Bonobo’s dynamics are as a composer. The chord sequence was sketched out by him on a flight, Michael Milosh AKA Rhye then recorded the verses in Berlin, horns were added in London, then Green did the final mix in his own LA studio. Over a harp device, Bonobo builds a shuffling, emotional drumbeat, those aforementioned horns, piano and bass, over which Rhye delivers a stand-out vocal performance—achingly sweet, full of longing, perfectly understated.

Rhye has said of the song: “I’m so happy Simon asked me to work on this song with him. From the moment I heard the instrumental track it spoke to me more than I can express in words. Being able to work with an artist that continuously makes me envious, like Simon, is where I always want to be.”

‘Migration’ will be out January 13th on Ninja Tune and you can pre-order here.
