John Carroll Kirby | Dance Ancestral

|




John Carroll Kirby will release Dance Ancestral on April 8, 2022 – This will be his fifth album on Stones Throw since 2020. Dance Ancestral follows a loose chronology of a day in the life. The opening single is “Dawn of New Day,” featuring Laraaji. For his new LP, John Carroll Kirby “wanted to do something more electronic than previous albums.” He invited Canadian artist Yu Su to join him on production duties for Dance Ancestral, an album which loosely follows the narrative of a day unfolding. As the day mirrors the course of a life, so the album reflects on patterns and routines – what Kirby calls “the innate steps we take in life. When I say dance, I don’t mean an actual dance, I mean a choreography where we’re repeating these things that people have repeated forever.” For inspiration, he looked to an array of ideas and philosophies, including paganism, Mayan religion, bacchanalia, pseudoscience and New Age philosophy.
