HAAi Collaborates With Alexis Taylor
Artist/producer and singer HAAi aka Teneil Throssell, has released a new video for “Biggest Mood Ever.” The latest single off her debut album Baby, We’re Ascending features Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, and now available via Mute. “Biggest Mood Ever” video was helmed by creative partner Tom Furse (The Horrors).
Speaking on the collaboration, Taylor says, “Teneil & I wanted to make a song together and kept excitedly talking about it. I expected a techno banger but was so pleased that she sent this transcendental hyperballad. I went into a trance and recorded these words straight away. ‘The heart shows signs that must not be ignored.’ This song may crush you emotionally, if you are open to it.”
Reflecting on the video’s creation, Furse says, “The video was made by taking a video Alexis shot on his phone of him miming to the track and me using all manner of AI and otherwise wizardry to transform that into this psychedelic representation, telling his story of love as he drifts through and past the world.”
Along with the new video, HAAi just announced a new string of U.S. tour dates with The Blessed Madonna including shows in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Miami, and Denver as well as a stop at San Francisco’s Portola Festival. Additionally, HAAi will play a live headline show at London’s EartH on November 4. See the full itinerary and purchase tickets below.
With community and collaboration being a key theme running through the LP, Baby, We’re Ascending features an all-star line-up of contributors including Obi Franky, Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Jon Hopkins, Alexis Taylor & Moxie. Weaving her own vocals throughout the album, it was crafted alongside designer Raissa Pardini, mixing engineer Marta Salogni (Björk, Romy), engineer/producer Francine Perry, string arranger Quinta and creative director/long-time collaborator Imogene Barron.
