Today, the innovative French artist SebastiAn releases his sophomore album Thirst to wide critical acclaim. He returns with his first album in eight years, after his 2011 debut Total and released via Ed Banger Records / Because Music.
Yesterday, he revealed a stunning music video “Sober” ft Bakar, produced by Saint Laurent and directed by the iconic fashion house’s creative Nathalie Canguilhem. Shot in a spectacularly unreal part of Turkey where 732 château-style villas have been built, yet left empty – starring French actor Félix Maritaud and SebastiAn – it brings the viewer into the perfect world to experience SebastiAn’s brand new single. The pulsating synth driven track features rich vocals from rising London artist Bakar and a signature SebastiAn bassline.
Other tracks released from the new album include the title track “Thirst”, “Run for Me” featuring acclaimed R&B singer Gallant, “Better Now” featuring American singer Mayer Hawthorne, “Beograd” and “Doorman” feat. Syd (The Internet) which was premiere by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac as “Hottest Record”.
