Shigeto Prepares Release Of ‘No Better Time Than Now’

The Detroit beatsmith will drop his third album in August, via Ghostly International.

Zach Saginaw, aka Shigeto, cites a creative and turbulent 2012 as the inspiration for his forthcoming album: “2012 was a powerful year for me. I released my second LP; I played nearly 180 shows in 360 days; I made the move back home from Brooklyn, NY to Detroit, MI; a six-year relationship of mine came to an end and I made it 30 years on the planet.”

Said second LP, ‘Lineage’, was a triumph in crossbred glitch and hip-hop noodlings, and Saginaw’s third full length sounds equally promising. Titled ‘No Better Time Than Now’, the 12-track album will be released on August 20th, once again on the revered roster of Ghostly International. You can hear two of the singles below.
