It looks as though Bonobo is teasing a new project, though for now details remain scarce. After updating his website and plastering posters in 12 locations around the world, fans are beginning to suspect he has something new (and big) underway.
Taking to Instagram earlier this week to tease a new track, the snippet features a short, looping clip of the grooving new material. The post encourages fans to click over to Bonobo’s website, which floats through images with titles such as “Rosewood,” “Shadows,” “Tides,” “Closer,” “Day By Day,” “Otomo,” “Counterpart,” “Age of Phase,” “Polyghost,” “From You,” “Elysian,” and “Sapien.”
Clicking in each image shows a corresponding billboard in different cities, with “Rosewood” landing in London and offering a limited 12″ white label, “Shadows” offering the same product but showing a billboard in Sydney, and Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, Berlin, New York, Amsterdam, Mexico City, Lisbon, Moscow, and Warsaw all doing the same.
Whatever Bonobo’s next project is—perhaps a new album in the works—it follows his 2020 collaborative EP with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Heartbreak / 6000 Ft. With more news about Bonobo’s upcoming project soon, fans should be sure to keep an eye out.
