After two recent singles showcasing the dynamic range of Migration, his best album to date, Bonobo returns with his third track of the album due out on Friday ‘No Reason’.
It features the vocals of Bonobos long time friend, and now collaborator, Nick Murphy (formerly Chet Faker.) and is dance music at its deepest, a beautiful house song with fragile melodies underpinned by a tough-edged groove and razor-sharp arpeggio.
The song came about when Simon Green (AKA Bonobo) and Nick were discussing a shared love of disco. Si played the instrumental of No Reason, and Nick instantly fell in love with it. After laying down demo vocals in that first session, the pair recorded the final version in NYC, Sis former home, and Nicks current one.
