M83 collaborator Morgan Kibby is prepping the release a solo EP, This Frontier, for an Oct. 5 release date. The French chanteuse will release the five songs under the moniker White Sea. Kibby has been hard at work on the EP since finishing her tour with M83 last year and has stated that the solo release will draw from Kibby’s interest in disco bass lines, ’60s spaghetti westerns and the work of Ennio Morricone’s soundtracks. As of right now, it looks as though Kibby will be self-releasing the five-song recording.
In addition to the EP, Kibby recently finished a remix of School of Seven Bells’ “Dust Devil,” which will be released with the trio’s single “Heart is Strange” on Sept. 14. [CMJ]
