Back in March, chameleon Stockholm, Sweden artist Sarah Assbring aka El Perro del Mar set the stage for a new album, named Kokoro, to be released later this year with the reveal of the song “BreadandButter.” Today, we have the pleasure of formally announcing a release date of Assbring’s fifth studio album slated to drop on September 16th. The album could be her most personal and ambitious to date with every visual, sound, costume, and so on painstakenly thought out to the furthest degree with much of the influence stemming from, according to Assbring, “listening to Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and Indian pop music for the last three years.”

With the announcement, she also provided an alternate Karaoke themed video for the previously mentioned “Breadandbutter” keeping in with the Far East motif of the album. You can find the clip along with Assbring’s brief thoughts on emotions of the new LP. It is available for pre-order now via iTunes and physically via The Control Group.

‘KoKoro’ is about the vulnerability and the strength of the heart. What the heart is exposed to, both internally and externally. The heart cannot be protected. Not from pain, not from happiness. Not from love, not from corruption. I’ve been thinking a lot about issues such as “who am I if the social norms, expectations and pressures I carry were to be stripped away?” Hard? Soft? Or maybe both?

In a time that seem to go backwards humanistically and morally, seeking to put up walls rather than tearing them down I realized I wanted to make a borderless album that belongs nowhere but has a universal voice and a universal heart. -El Perro Del Mar
