Due out Nov. 8, 'Corroncho' features contributions from Chrissie Hynde, Annie Lennox, Robert Wyatt and Roxy drummer Paul Thompson, among others. The Spanish-language, cumbia-flavored tunes were made in collaboration with Lucho Brieva, a Colombian artist Manzanera worked with from 2003 to 2008.
A concept record, 'Corroncho' takes its title from a "politically incorrect but humorous" term used by residents of Bogota, Columbia, to describe people from the Caribbean coast, according to a press release. The songs tell the story of two such coastal folks, focusing on their "trials and tribulations, good and bad points, loves and hates, political correctness and incorrectness but ultimately their good humour, good heart and ability to dance, all illuminating the many social issues in present day South Americas."
The track 'Lowrider' is available for free download on the album's website, and there's a video trailer for the project below.
