Bonobo collaborates with Jordan Rakei on new single 'Shadows'

With his eagerly-awaited new album due out next month, Bonobo has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Shadows' sees him team up with Jordan Rakei for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Rosewood', 'Otomo' ft. O'Flynn, and 'Tides' ft. Jamila Woods in previewing his new LP 'Fragments', which is out on the 14th January via Ninja Tune.

Speaking about the new collaboration, Bonobo said, “Shadows was one of the first pieces in place for the new record and working with Jordan was such a joy. We’d spent plenty of time together previously. He’s toured with us and I’m a huge fans of his. He was an easy choice as a collaborator. The instrumental existed as a slow evolving throwback Detroit thing. I had people like Theo Parish and Moodyman in mind when I was making it. It’s been one of my favourites from the new album since day one.“

While Jordan Rakei added, “I've been a huge fan of Bonobo for such a long time and to now share a piece of music with him is super special. We actually worked on this tune remotely in the beginning of Lockdown 2020. Simon sent me the track and I actually wrote about 3 different verses and 3 different choruses. When you work remotely it's really difficult to gauge whether or not an idea is suitable to their vision, so I wanted to make sure I was sending more than enough haha. And he chose his favourite verse and favourite chorus and I went and recorded it in my London studio.”
