Reduced down to 10 tracks, the album includes productions created from Moroccan street music, songs from Baghdad, Islamic music from India and Sufi ceremonial tunes.

In a statement he addresses the potential issues of cultural appropriation that surround the project, saying: “Cries of cultural appropriation abound, and the ethics of all this still up in the air. But we are all human on this planet, we all breathe the same air, our similarities are far greater than our differences.

“We can be touched deeply on a human level by music from anywhere in the world… A beautiful thing about the digital age is that if we choose to, we can see how deeply connected we all are, and we can start to find some truth about what it means to be human. Exploring other cultures and the artforms within is as good a place as any to start.”
