Out November 1st, the LP features Axel Boman, Def Sound and Swedish vocalist Gnučči.
The nine-track full-length will be the Swedish artist's third release on the popular house label, following the Fire and Supervillain EPs. It features vocal cameos from Gnučči and LA-based artist Def Sound, plus Nils Janson on trumpet and label cofounder Axel Boman on acid bassline.
"I made the album this summer during an intense creative period back home in Stockholm," Bella Boo said. "I found out I was getting evicted from my trusted studio, this came as shock and added a sense of urgency to my work. I was pretty lonely during these months, spending almost all my time outside of the studio with my daughter Bozi. She snapped the cover photo while I was picking out records for a gig. Taking care of her gave me the space I needed to reflect on the music I was making. It could feel pretty rough to tear myself away from a tune to go pick her up at daycare but now I realize that dynamic was exactly what I needed to finish this album."
