Lab Overview

"John Carroll Kirby’s fifth album on Stones Throw since 2020. For his new LP, Kirby 'wanted to do something more electronic than previous albums.' He invited Canadian artist Yu Su to join him on production duties for Dance Ancestral, an album which loosely follows the narrative of a day unfolding. As the day mirrors the course of a life, so the album reflects on patterns and routines – what Kirby calls 'the innate steps we take in life. When I say dance, I don’t mean an actual dance, I mean a choreography where we’re repeating these things that people have repeated forever.' For inspiration, he looked to an array of ideas and philosophies, including paganism, Mayan religion, bacchanalia, pseudoscience and New Age philosophy. The opening track and first single 'Dawn of New Day,' featuring ambient pioneer Laraaji, pictures the first hours of morning. 'I imagine Laraaji waking up feeling blessed and inspired by the sun,' says Kirby. 'The lyric is very simple – Dawn of a new day / morning light, morning light – but there’s not a lot of people who could sing that sincerely and not come across a little cringe. Laraaji is the man for the job and I was flattered and honored he was willing to be a part of it'." - Stones Throw
