Tom Skinner releasing new album, Voices of Bishara





The Smile and Sons of Kemet drummer is back.

Drummer and producer Tom Skinner is releasing a new album — Voices of Bishara — via Brownswood, Nonesuch, and International Anthem this November.

Watch next: Okumu, Herbert, and Skinner cover A.K. Paul’s ‘Landcruisin’’

Voices of Bishara originally began life as a live recording, with Skinner then making adjustments in the studio.

“I took a very liberal approach with the scissors and started going really hard into the edits between instruments,” he recalls.

“I was taking my cue from the great disco re-edits, people like Theo Parrish chopping up tunes and looping sections. I’m not a purist. I don’t want to get hung up on the past.”

Voices of Bishara follows The Smile’s debut album, A Light For Attracting Attention, in April, as well as Skinner’s Undone: Live At the Crypt record with Dave Okumu and Tom Herbert, released on The Vinyl Factory in 2019.
