The debut solo album from Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino — a.k.a. KAZU — was already alluded to a couple of months ago; but notwithstanding the mouthful of seawater that literally all of us willfully swallowed courtesy of the first single that was unveiled, crucial details about the release were deviously postponed to a later date. No tracklist then means we get a tracklist now, for instance.

But perhaps more significantly: we’re now clued in to an Adult Baby VISUAL ALBUM that was heretofore nonexistent in the minds of everyone who’s been kept at a distance. The visual album was directed by Eva Michon (who, among other work, wrote and directed a documentary on Death From Above 1979), and it’s going to be a 40-minute narrative centered around the Italian island of Elba, which played a central role in KAZU’s musical inspiration this go ‘round.

Hear an excerpt from the track “Meo” by watching a trailer for visual album down below. One almost expects Makino to come out with an unabashed support for Dior perfume by the end of it; but fortunately, all we get are some lovely shots combined with emotionally striking music that’ll surely deserve your attention before you compile your year-end best-of lists. (Down the road, I mean.)

Adult Baby (both the visual album and not) is scheduled for release September 13 on Mankino’s brand new Adult Baby record label. Pre-order the release here, and don’t forget the aforementioned tracklist after the trailer and the full audio for “Meo.”
