While readying for his upcoming album Lantern, which is due June 16, Hudson Mohawke releases the visual to his Irfane-featured single “Very First Breath” tonight. Direted by Sam de Jong, it features two individuals discussing something inaudible and the utilization of Chinese captions. The face-painted characters in the visual give quite the suitable mood for the vibe of the track. Mohawke shares in a statement regarding his thoughts on the song:
“’Very First Breath’ was something fresh for me. I’d been touring on the same circuit for a couple of years with Irfane and I had been so busy on TNGHT stuff I was itching to work on more song structured record… The album flows through the passage of the day and in my head, I see this song as the very beginning of the record. The sun just coming up. It was important this was the first track people hear.”
