Bibio has revealed that he is set to release his seventh full length album entitled Silver Wilkinson on May 13th via the esteemed outlet Warp Records.
Following up a couple of years after his last LP, the excellent Mind Bokeh the inspiration and concept behind this effort appear to hail from the outdoors and we’re told first single "À tout à l'heure" was actually recorded in his very own back garden and takes a variety of samples from his gardening equipment and sounds of nature such as the sound created by rain hitting the tin roof of his garden shed. He elaborates "If there was a preconceived idea before this album started coming together, it was a fairly vague one: to focus more on an organic and live sound and to record more guitar and other live instrumentation. However, I'm no purist, so I don't restrain myself from taking stylistic diversions, to do so might be to dispose of the unplanned. As a result this album feels to me as eclectic as my previous two albums."
We’re glad to hear James hasn’t traded in his eclecticism but with him hooking up with those cool cats at Warp it was never really in any doubt!
