This week, El Perro del Mar (aka Sarah Assbring) announced her sixth album, KoKoro.
On her first album since 2012's Pale Fire, Assbring finds inspiration in Chinese and Japanese instrumentation, and Ethiopian rhythms. She touches upon a number of social issues in the lyrics, including capitalism and the environment.
Earlier this year, she released the album's first single "Breadandbutter." With the new album announcement, she also released the song's video.
