A pioneering French artist who weaves between genres so smoothly you wouldn’t even bat an eyelash at it
THE BACK STORY: SebastiAn has been releasing pioneering and acclaimed music via label Ed Banger Records for years. Since his debut album, SebastiAn has also produced for other artists including Frank Ocean, Kavinsky, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Philippe Katerine, Woodkid, and has created remixes for Daft Punk, Kelis, The Kills, Rage Against the Machine and more.
NEW MUSIC: Bringing different styles together as one on the new record – from European techno and electro to classic pop and R&B, hip-hop and American gospel – SebastiAn has also called upon an impressive list of artists to feature on the 14-track album. They include acclaimed singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg (SebastiAn primarily produced her 2017 album ‘Rest’), cult pop duo Sparks, Grammy-nominated singer Mayer Hawthorne, American singer/songwriter Syd from The Internet and experimental Iranian/Dutch artist Sevdaliza.
‘Thirst’ comes eight years after SebastiAn’s 2011 debut, ‘Total’. Singles released from the new album include ‘Thirst’, ‘Run for Me’ featuring acclaimed US R&B singer Gallant, ‘Better Now’ featuring American singer Mayer Hawthorne, and ‘Beograd’.
