Shigeto is back and just announced his newest piece of work The New Monday out October 6th on Ghostly International, featuring collaborations with Kaleena Zanders, ZelooperZ and Silas Green. This nine-track project serves as his first solo LP since 2013 No Better Time Than Now, and lent the name of the weekly event series he helps organize at Detroit bar Motor City Wine called "Monday Is The New Monday".
In contrast to Shigeto's previous slower and ethereal works, this project is said to be "leaning more into a dance music direction" as it took its influence from "the community of Detroit". The producer elaborated on this artistic shift in an official statement:
It's focused on a couple things and they all kind of come together to represent different things. My time back in Detroit, back living in Michigan and spending time with a lot of kind of original people who have always been here, learning from them, hearing stories from them, being influenced by them, and inspired by them.
