Hudson Mohawke and director Sam De Jong come with their own special take on a West Side Story or Rome & Juliet style tale for the “Very First Breath” video, with lovers from different gangs coming together in surreal fashion.
Hudson Mohawke has the following to say about the track, his album Lantern’s first single:
“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.”
Lantern is out June 16.
