Japanese pianist Koki Nakano today releases ‘Berceuse’, the latest single to be lifted from his forthcoming new album ‘Pre-Choreographed’, due out through Nø Førmat! (also home to Oumou Sangaré and Mélissa Laveaux amongst others) on April 24, 2020. The album is the follow-up to Nakano’s much-admired 2016 debut ‘Lift’, also released on Nø Førmat! and created in collaboration with cellist Vincent Segal.
Speaking about the tightly looping new single ‘Berceuse’, Koki notes; “Sleep relieves you from all your anxieties, but here there’s a hint of mystery too. Yes the tempo is slow, like a normal lullaby, but the repetitive piano notes maintain a mysterious and suspenseful mood.”
