The song is taken from Bo Ningen’s forthcoming new album ‘Sudden Fictions’, which is set for release on June 26 via Alcopop! Records.
Bo Ningen recruited Gillespie to provide guest vocals on ‘Minimal’, with the singer duetting in both Japanese and English with the band’s bassist and vocalist Taigen Kawabe.
You can hear Bo Ningen’s ‘Minimal’ below.
“Minimal is the first-ever ‘properly produced’ track—as well as the most catchy song—in Bo Ningen’s thirteen year history,” Kawabe explained in an accompanying statement.
“After crossing the world line guided by Andrew Innes and Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, the anthemic element of a new sound was extracted and finalised by producer/electronic musician Matthew Herbert.”
Bo Ningen have also announced the tracklist for ‘Sudden Fictions’, which you can see below.
