Soundwalk Collective have teamed up with Patti Smith for another new album.

Titled 'Mummer Love', the upcoming collaborative release marks the second in 'The Perfect Vision' triptych of albums inspired by French poets Antonin Artaud, Arthur Rimbaud, and René Daumal.

It follows 'The Peyote Dance', which arrived in May and features guest contributions from Phillip Glass, Mulatu Astatke, and the Sufi Group of Sheikh Ibrahim. 

For this body of work, out on November 8 via Bella Union, Soundwalk Collective journeyed to Africa to explore Rimbaud’s most obscure period. The release will coincide with the anniversary of his death. He died of cancer on November 10, 1891 aged 37.

Eternity is the first track to be shared from the record and it finds Smith's spoken word lyrics overlapped with chanted choral vocals and varied beats. Listen below.

Smith previously collaborated with Soundwalk Collective on 2016's 'Killer Road'

'Mummer Love' tracklist:

1. Aw Abadir
2. La Maison de Rimbaud
3. Eternity
4. Song Of The Highest Tower
5. Mummer Love
6. Farewell
7. Bad Blood
8. Sensation
