Simon Green, much better known as Bonobo, has just announced a new album, Migration, and shared the first single off it , titled “Kerala”. The LP (out January 13) is a follow-up to 2013’s The Norths Borders. It features some fine guests on it, including Rhye or Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker). So here’s something to look forward to in the new year!
The “Kerala” video was directed by Bison and it stars Gemma Arterton.

Massive Attack recently teamed up with Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) for a new track , The Spoils, and now they also released a follow up video for it, starring Cate Blanchett.
The clip directed by John Hillcoat shows Blanchett’s head being gradually and slowly transformed until it turns into stone. As sad and deconstructive as this process might look like, along with the angelic Hope’s vocals, it actually leaves you with some sort of a resurrection feeling. Tempting to say, a Hope feeling.
The Spoils was released along with another song, Come Near Me, on Massive Attack’s new 2-track EP.
