Rone retreated to what was the house of French writer George Sand in rural Nohant to write and produce the album, with certain track titles paying homage to trees in the garden.
Room With A View was produced alongside a live performance with choreography collective (LA) HORDE and dancers from the Ballet National de Marseille, with both the performance and album exploring the current climate emergency.
The album features samples of French writer Alain Damasio and scientist Aurelien Barrau’s climate emergency discussion, alongside the sounds of dance troupe rehearsals and Rone’s own child.
