Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith unveil new single "Ivry"

08 April 2019, 16:33 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith have shared "Ivry" from their forthcoming collaborative album, The Peyote Dance.

"Ivry" is the second offering to be shared from the album inspired by Antonin Artaud, after last month's "The New Revelations Of Being".

The Peyote Dance is the first of three albums planned for release over the next year, with the other two albums taking inspiration from French poets Arthur Rimbaud, René Daumal, and Antonin Artaud.

On The Perfect Collection albums, a press release states, "Recorded in the Sierra Tarahumara of Mexico, Abyssinian valley of Ethiopia, and Himalayan Summit of India respectively, the central idea is that each landscape holds sleeping memories that are the witness of human passage. Each album retraces the poets’ footsteps, channelled through on-location recorded soundscapes and musicalities."

Patti Smith and The Soundwalk Collective first worked together on 2016's Killer Road. Back in 2017, Smith bought the reconstructed home of Arthur Rimbaud.

"Ivry" is out now. The Peyote Dance is released 31 May via Bella Union.
