The Warp Records artist will release his next album in May.
Bibio will release his latest album through Warp Records on May 13th.
Silver Wilkinson will be Stephen James Wilkinson's seventh full-length, arriving two years after his most recent album, Mind Bokeh. The sounds of the album were in part inspired by the outdoors—first single "À tout à l'heure" was recorded in Wilkinson's back garden and samples a plastic watering can and garden shears, while "Dye The Water Green" features the sound of rain falling on the tin roof of the producer's shed.
"If there was a preconceived idea before this album started coming together, it was a fairly vague one: to focus more on an organic and live sound and to record more guitar and other live instrumentation," Wilkinson explains. "However, I'm no purist, so I don't restrain myself from taking stylistic diversions, to do so might be to dispose of the unplanned. As a result this album feels to me as eclectic as my previous two albums."
