Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective Detail New Album ‘Peradam’, Release Title Track

Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective have announced a new album called Peradam, the third and final instalment in in their Perfect Vision trilogy, to be released on September 4th via Bella Union. They’ve also shared the title track from the album, which you can listen to below.

Each of Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective’s collaborative projects so far has focused on the life of a past author, and Peradam continues that pattern. 2016’s Killer Road was a tribute to poet and singer-songwriter Nico, while the first two entries in the Perfect Vision trilogy, 2019’s Peyote Dance and Mummer Love, honoured the work of Antonin Artaud and Rimbaud respectively. The new album was inspired by René Daumal, the French metaphysical novelist best known for his posthumously published 1952 novel Mount Analogue. The new track includes direct quotes from the book, with Smith repeating the line “I will not speak of the mountain” against a backdrop of different types of percussion and nature sounds, which were recorded at various Himalayan mountains in India and Nepal.

Peradam, which is available to pre-order now, is set to feature appearances from Charlotte Gainsbourg, Anoushka Shankar, and Tenzin Choegyal.
