From the forthcoming album "Let's Dance Raw,"out September 16 (September 15 in the UK/EU) on Other Music Recording Co. 

Japanese singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shintaro Sakamoto returns with a new full-length, Let's Dance Raw, which Other Music Recording Co. (distributed by Fat Possum) releases on September 16. The album is the follow-up to Sakamoto's solo debut, the otherworldly folk-pop masterpiece How to Live with a Phantom (2012, Other Music).

While How to Live with a Phantom was the first many around the globe knew of Sakamoto, he has long been an icon in his homeland, having long fronted the psychedelic phenomenon Yura Yura Teikoku, a Tokyo-based band that emerged from Koenji's legendary UFO Club scene and, across their 20-year trajectory, achieved mainstream success throughout the country. Following the group's break-up in 2010, Sakamoto began working on How to Live with a Phantom, a bold stylistic departure that eschewed Yura Yura Teikokou's psychedelic freak-outs for a much quieter and harder-to-define sound.
