English producer Bibio has just released new single The Way You Talk, taken from Bibio’s upcoming eighth studio album entitled A Mineral Love, which is scheduled for release in less than a month’s time. The track features none other than Australian songwriter Gotye aka Wally De Backer.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bibio explained the influences and thought process behind the new single. “The emotional nature of the track and the way I played the piano part seemed to lend itself to an Eighties ballad type sound, something I have a bit of a soft spot for.”
Also speaking to Rolling Stone, Gotye highlighted why he wanted to collaborate with Bibio. “I’ve loved his music for a number of years now. And I’ve always had a soft spot for short musical vignettes that capture a certain feeling in a compelling and compact way,” he said.
It is not the first time the pair have worked together though, as Gotye had previously asked the producer to do a remix of his international smash hit Somebody That I Used To Know. The sparse but melodic new single stands as yet another hit that the pair have produced together. You can listen to it here and listen to their previous collaboration below:
A Mineral Love is released on April 1st via Warp.
