Shintaro Sakamoto, the former frontman of Japan's Yura Yura Teikoku, has shared the excellent 'Like an Obligation'.

Using delicate touches of subtle funk guitar riffs, saxophones lines, and light syncopation, Sakamoto cooks up a dream. It's also a pretty sublime taster of what to expect from his forthcoming second album, Let's Dance Raw, which is out September 15 via Other Music.

You can pre-order Let's Dance Raw at iTunes, or from Other Music's website .
