Bonobo US Tour with Jordan Rakei + New Album

February 5th, 2022

 Bonobo aka Simon Green has released his highly-anticipated new album Fragments via Ninja Tune, which features Jamila Woods, Joji, Kadhja Bonet, Jordan Rakei, O’Flynn, and Miguel Atwood-FergusonFragments arrives with tremendous momentum: rave reviews, featured on NPR Music’s New Music Friday program and coverage from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, The Fader, SPIN, Hypebeast, Zane Lowe, a DJ Mag cover story, an interview on WNYC and much more.

After coming back from touring for two years, Green felt a sense of everything shifting and unraveling with the California wildfires and ongoing pandemic as he set out to make this new album. Born first out of fragments of ideas and experimentation in his Los Angeles studio in 2020 and 2021, the album ultimately was fused together in a burst of creativity fueled by collaboration, Green’s solo adventures into the deserts of California and even his use of modular synths for the first time. Fragmentsis the sound of struggle and isolation, personally and collectively – and of a surging, joyous return. It is a reminder that out of struggle and disillusionment, creativity and hope can emerge at the most unexpected moments.
