It’s been practically 9 years since Kavinsky launched his debut album, OutRun, that includes his smash hit, “Nightcall.” Since then, the producer has remained enigmatic although not essentially elusive. A gradual social media presence has saved hope alive that he would someday return and, to be corny, reply his personal evening name.
Final 12 months, he introduced a brand new album was on the best way and at this time we get the primary single, “Renegade” with Cautious Clay.
Enormously impressed by cinema, Kavinsky has at all times intertwined music and storytelling. His breakthrough hit “Nightcall” soundtracked the opening moments of the movie Drive, so it’s solely becoming that the official video for “Renegade” unfurls like a condensed characteristic movie. After three criminals ship him flying by way of the home windows of a skyscraper, Kavinsky emerges with superpowers and exacts his revenge.
Alexandre Courtès (Daft Punk, U2, Jamiroquai), who directed the video, explains, “I wished to incorporate Kavinsky in an actual film the place he’s the hero. With all of the love and references he and I share, we pay homage to the movie craft we cherish. Kavinsky is again with a bang !…. wait, no truly it’s three bangs.”
Try the observe and video under! No date has but been given for the discharge of the full album, Reborn, however an informed guess locations its arrival subsequent 12 months.
