Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective reveal final album in ‘Perfect Vision’ trilogy


Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective have revealed the third and final album in their Perfect Vision trilogy.

The latest effort is titled Peradam and acts as the final instalment in the series following last year’s Peyote Dance and Mummer Love. It is set to arrive on September 4 through Bella Union and will feature appearances from the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Anoushka Shankar, and Tenzin Choegyal.

As with their previous collaborations, Peradam will focus on a writer from the past. The record will shine a light on René Daumal, the French metaphysical novelist whose most famous work, Mount Analogue: A Novel Of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidean Adventures In Mountain Climbing, compares the meaning of life to an alpine ascent.

Smith and Soundwalk Collective first worked together on 2016’s Killer Road, a tribute to the German poet and songwriter Nico. Peyote Dance celebrated Antonin Artaud, while Mummer Love honoured the works of Rimbaud.
