Following 3 Grammy nominations and the astounding reception of his previous album Migration in 2017, Fragments announces a new chapter for Bonobo. Its many movements glow in perpetual transformation, inspired by his escapes into the wild. In its intricate enmeshing of electronica with live instrumentation, the distinct moments of creativity and collaboration embedded deep within it shine through.

The album prolifically features a musical A-list - of Jamila Woods, Joji, Kadhja Bonet, Jordan Rakei, O’Flynn, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson - composing a collective work of heterogeneous dimensions and with an all-encompassing significance. In introspectively distilling many reflections made amidst the standstill of a global lockdown, it reveals Green’s most impassioned songwriting to date. With clear influences of UK bass and rave cultures, it builds on melancholic themes with hope for a world of human interaction and dancing.

Fragment’s 12 tracks play in a series of affecting moments, a gradual, ecstatic unfolding as it was composed. Mixed by Green himself over the last 2 years, its motifs coalesced organically, through the recording of live orchestras and from working alongside acclaimed arranger Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Tides, created with Chicago-based singer and poet Jamila Woods, was a catalytic centre-piece around which the album pieced itself together. More bass heavy directions in Sapien take a different focussed more directly at the dancefloor, likewise Otomo which was produced by O’Flynn (Blip Discs, Silver Bear). In the record’s second half, ballads narrate a sentimental journey, with 'Day by Day' featuring Kadhja Bonet and 'From You' featuring Joji.

A welcome return for Bonobo, defining the infinite possibility to bridge electronica with other worlds once again. With his artistry, Fragments executes ubiquitous charm with utmost sophistication.
