It’s been three long years since Bonobo released his Black Sands LP, an album that cemented his reputation for putting out forward-thinking, largely organic electronic sounds (not to mention a top-notch live set). Shortly after dropping his new single, ‘Cirrus’ on Giles Peterson’s radio show, along with a countdown on his website, electronic producer, Bonobo officially announced the release of his new album, The North Borders.
Bonobo’s forthcoming Ninja Tune release due out on April 1st, comes complete with extensive tour dates as well as a sort of “golden ticket” competition. The label has pressed 250 white label records featuring a brand new track from the album. These 12″s will be hidden in some of the best indie record shops all over the world over the next few weeks.
Each 12″ has a unique code within it, which can be entered on Bonobo’s website for a chance to win a top secret grand prize. The records will be appearing at different times in different stores and countries, so be sure to keep tabs on your favorite record shop.
