It's a companion to his recent album, 'Sun Piano'

Laraaji has shared details of his second album of 2020.

Titled Moon Piano, it's a companion to his last album, Sun Piano, which was released last month. Both piano-based albums and the first two parts of a trilogy of records, they were recorded during the same session in a Brooklyn Church. You can watch a video that explores the full making of the piano trilogy above.

Where Sun Piano focused more on the uplifting side of Laraaji's keyboard improvisations, Moon Piano looks to the more introspective and minimal pieces that were captured during the session. Laraaji describes the new album's tracks as "contemplative sound painting, embracing quiet tranquil unfolding of nurturing reflection."

All Saints Records will release Moon Piano on October 9, 2020.
