Notes With Attachments, the new album from renowned bassist Pino Palladino and celebrated multi-instrumentalist and producer Blake Mills, is set for release March 12 via New Deal / Impulse!. Initially conceived as a solo record for Palladino, Notes With Attachments quickly evolved into a fully collaborative work centered around the two artists' love for experimentation.

"With a song like this, built in layers, at various points along the road you look around and go: what is this' Where is the composition' Sometimes you end up drawing the blueprints of the house after it's fully been built," says Mills about "Just Wrong." That process touches every song on the record, which typically began with Palladino's own melodic and rhythmic language and developed outward with references shared by the two musicians from West African and Cuban music, funk, jazz, and English folk. 

Initially conceived as a solo record for Palladino, Notes With Attachments quickly evolved into a fully collaborative work centered around the two artists' love for experimentation. "Ekuté" follows debut single "Just Wrong," which Stereogum praised as "a warm, hazy jazz instrumental that takes its time and gives Palladino's bass plenty of room to move" and Aquarium Drunkard called "the sort of song that tempts you to restart it before it even finishes," along with live recordings of "Just Wrong" and "Man from Molise."
