A Tribute To Ryuichi Sakamoto – To The Moon And Back


‘A Tribute To Ryuichi Sakamoto – To The Moon And Back’ is a collection of songs celebrating the legendary composer on his 70th birthday. The album, to be released in December by Milan Records, includes ‘Grains (Sweet Paulownia Wood)’ (David Sylvian Remodel).

“From contemporary admirers of Sakamoto’s work like Thundercat, Devonté Hynes, and Hildur Guðnadóttir to longtime collaborators and friends like David Sylvian, Alva Noto, Cornelius, and Fennesz, plus some of Sakamoto’s personal favorites like Lim Giong, Gabrial Wek, and 404.zero, the included artists reflect the breadth of Sakamoto’s influence on contemporary music. Given full access to the musician’s extensive catalogue of solo releases and film scores, each artist personally selected their contribution and put their unique spin on Sakamoto’s originals.”
