Pioneering French artist SebastiAn releases a brand new track “Better Now” today – the fourth track to be taken from his sophomore album, Thirst, released 8th November via Ed Banger Records / Because Music. The album is available to pre-order now.

The dreamy electronic track with 1960s-style harmonies features vocals from Grammy-nominated American artist Mayer Hawthorne and is taken from SebastiAn’s first album in eight years, following 2011 debut,Total. Previous tracks released from the new album include “Thirst”,”Run for Me” featuring acclaimed R&B singer Gallant, and “Beograd”.

SebastiAn about “Better Now”: “I couldn’t have a better guest for this song. “Better Now” is all about love – and when he is singing, Mayer knows what he’s talking about.”

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, rising London star Bakar, American singer/songwriter Syd from The Internet and experimental Iranian/Dutch artist Sevdaliza.

SebastiAn says the approach of making the new album was formed by his previous production work with the contrasting personalities of Frank Ocean and Charlotte Gainsbourg and switching his process accordingly. He explains: “I found this really interesting. My record came about from all the encounters I made going between these two projects.”

Thirst album tracklisting:
01. Thirst
02. Doorman ft. Syd
03. Movement
04. Better Now ft. Mayer Hawthorne
05. Pleasant ft. Charlotte Gainsbourg
06. Yebo ft. Allan Kingdom
07. Sev ft. Sevdaliza

10. Time to Talk ft. Sunni Colòn
11. Beograd
12. Handcuffed to a Parking Meter ft. Sparks

Revered French photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino has once again shot the cover art for the album. While for Total he captured SebastiAn as a modern-day Narcissus kissing himself, for Thirst he contrasts this as he photographs him in a desert punching himself.
