Following the release of Everybody Glows: B-Sides & Rarities last year, Kaki King has announced details of a new album, due out in just over a month. The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body drops on March 3th via Short Stuff Records and it comes paired with a high-tech projection mapping show, that sees King touring North America from today until May. The multimedia show produced in collaboration with Glowing Pictures, who have previously worked with Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio, amongst others.
“Although it’s a soundtrack to the multimedia show, I want the album to stand on it’s own as a collection of instrumental music,” said Kaki. “The album is an amalgam of the many different ways I’ve approached the instrument over the years. Some of it’s rough, some of it’s sad and beautiful, and some of it could be remixed for the dance floor. More than anything the process of creating this music has proven to me once again that the guitar really does the speaking, and I’m just the interpreter.”
To give us a taster, King has shared a live video of her performing ‘Battle is a Learning’. Here it is.
