Blonde Redhead vocalist Kazu Makino has announced her debut solo album, Adult Baby, simply under the name KAZU, and has shared its first single, “Salty,” via a video for the song. She has also started her own label, also named Adult Baby, that will be distributed by !K7. There’s no word on the album’s exact release date other than later this year, nor any information on its tracklist or cover art. Above is the cover art for the “Salty” single and below you can watch its video.

Paride Ambrogi directed the video, which was filmed on Italy’s Elba Island, where Makino lives part of the time (splitting her time with New York City). Adult Baby will feature the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Mauro Refosco (Atoms for Peace, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Byrne), and Ian Chang (Son Lux, Landlady).

In a press release Makino had this to say about the album’s title and her label name: “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. 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; some will think it curious, others erotic, others still strange or tender: it all depends on how you see it.”
