Listing Detail Tabs

Banga was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City and produced by Patti Smith and her band. The album also features guests include Tom Verlaine, Jack Petruzzelli, Smith’s son Jackson and daughter Jesse Paris.

Inspired by Smith’s unique dreams and observations, Banga’s poetic lyrics are a reflection of our complex world – a world that is rife with chaos and beauty. Praised for her storytelling abilities, Smith has crafted an album that captures a wide range of human experience.

There is an exploratory spirit in the songs that make up Banga, including a melodic overture imagining the voyage of Amerigo Vespucci to the New World in 1497 (Amerigo), a rock song for the people of Japan in the wake of last years earthquake (Fuji-san), a classic ballad in memory of Amy Winehouse (This Is The Girl), an improvised meditation on art and nature (Constantine’s Dre­am) as well as a birthday song written for her friend Johnny Depp (Nine). Listeners of all generations will surely relate to the hope, humour, and humanity of Patti Smith’s adventurous new album.

Special Edition comes as a hard cover book including 64 pages of original images, complete lyrics & liner notes by the artist plus an exclusive track, ‘Just Kids’.
