Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino has announced the release of her debut solo album, ‘Adult Baby’, through her own label of the same name. First single ‘Salty’ is out now, featuring, among others, Ryuichi Sakamoto.

“The title came to me when an old friend told me about the existence of so-called ‘adult baby club’, frequented by powerful men who go there to be treated like small children”, says Makino. “This discovery struck me, perhaps because I am convinced that in a way, we are all adult babies, that many people feel that way inside and that they identify with this expression”.

“Each in his own way, ‘Adult Baby’ is a title that can be taken in many ways”, she goes on. “Some will think it curious, others erotic, others still strange or tender: it all depends on how you see it”.

‘Adult Baby’ is out on 13 Sep. Watch the video for ‘Salty’ here:
