French DJ/producer Sebastian released his debut album, Total, eight years ago this month. Now, he’s finally ready to drop its follow-up.
Due out through longtime label Ed Banger Records/Because Music, the as-yet-untitled record is due to arrive this fall. In addition to Total, the project comes after Sebastian’s production work for folks like Frank Ocean (Blonde) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Take 2 EP), as well as remixes of Daft Punk and Beastie Boys.
To preview the forthcoming LP, Sebastian has shared “Run for Me”. It’s a funky yet smooth tune, and features guest vocals from CoSigned R&B crooner Gallant.
“We made it in one day, in one take without stopping,” Sebastian explained in a statement. “The melody evolved wherever it seemed to want to go all by itself. I tracked Gallant down for the vocals because he shared the same power and logic that the song aimed to have and I wasn’t disappointed. The song really came into its own when the vocals were laid down on the track.”
Check out “Run for Me” below via its video, directed by Todd Tourso (Beyoncé, Rihanna).
Sebastian is scheduled to perform at a number of festivals this summer, including We Love Green in France, Belgium’s Dour Festival, Sónar Festival in Barcelona, and Montreal’s Osheaga Festival.
