With a stacked Aussie tour looming in the distance, Claptone has geared up even more through the release of his new single ‘Stay The Night’.
The second official release from his forthcoming, sophomore album Fantast, ‘Stay The Night’ sees Claptone build a dark, moody piece of electronica and introduces of London duo TENDER on the feature.
Speaking on his new album – which is due to drop on June 8 via Different Recordings – Claptone says “it has been a great pleasure to work on this album as a counterpoint to the hectic world of travelling as a DJ.”
“To lose myself when making music, to dive into and create my very own realm of beauty. I admit it’s a dreamy, a heartfelt, at times a naive and surely escapist album, but what to do if one – on the quest for his soul – develops a strong desire to go back to his roots, back to nature? Did I find myself on that journey? Rather not. But I found some beautiful moments in the green, out in the woods, out in the fields, under the moon and in the night, moments, which I want to share with you. And there is one thing I learned and now it can be told, I am and have always been a ‘Fantast’.”
Claptone will be hitting Aussie shores next month for the Groovin The Moo tour that tie in with his nationwide Masquerade tour. For more info on tour dates and to hear his latest track ‘Stay The Night‘, scroll down.
