Shigeto Announces New LP for Ghostly, Shares First Single
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Increasingly prolific Ann Arbor native Shigeto has announced he will drop a new LP called No Better Time Than Now via Ghostly this August, sharing a stream of the record's engrossing first single in the process. While the full details of the upcoming album have yet to surface, Shigeto's "Detroit Part 1" is an unmistakably jazz-flavored instrumental which shuffles along with live percussion and picks up a gorgeous melodic run of thumb-piano plucks during its second half. The upcoming No Better Time Than Now LP is set to drop on August 20, but before then, it appears Ghostly will release "Detroit Part 1" as a standalone 12" on June 17. While we wait for more details, Shigeto's latest track can be streamed in full below.
