Bibio has announced a new album called A Mineral Love and shared the new song ‘Feeling’.
The Warp Records-signed English producer’s last album, 2013’s Silver Wilkinson, was one of the sleeper hits of that year, and is well worth revisiting.
A Mineral Love is due to be released on the Sheffield label on April 1.
In a lengthy press statement, Bibio explains the inspiration for his seventh studio record:
“This album celebrates the sacred and precious struggles of human insecurities through many windows of familiar musical forms. It’s also a celebration of my love of the craft of record making, drawing influences from many sources across all decades from the late sixties to the present. All these referential forms have a twist, some are more full on cocktails.”
‘Feeling’ sounds like a new direction for the producer, with its squelchy ’70s funk bassline and freestyle synth line.
