Bonobo has released the second single from his upcoming album Migration. The new single "Break Apart" features Michael Milosh of Rhye.
The new single is a soothing, emotive song that combines the ambient soundscapes of Bonobo and the soulful R&B voice of Milosh. It starts with the gentle strings and occasional snare roll, but then beckons in horns, strings and piano in this soothing arrangement that eases to a gradual finish four minutes and 35 second later.
"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," says Rhye about the song. "Being able to work with an artist that continuously makes me envious, like Simon, is where I always want to be."
"Kerala" wasn't an uptempo song by any stretch of the imagination, but this is even more downtempo than the first single from the album.
Migration will be released on Jan. 13 via Ninja Tune. The LP also features Nick Murphy (Chet Faker), Nicole Miglis of Hundred Waters and Innov Gnawa.
Starting on April 24, he will begin a month-long North American tour in Toronto and eventually finish in Vancouver on May 25.
