Kavinsky returns with “Renegade,” his first new music since 2013. The track, which features vocals from Cautious Clay, is from the French producer’s forthcoming album, Reborn. The track is out today via Astralwerks.
Greatly inspired by cinema, Kavinsky has always intertwined music and storytelling. His track “Nightcall” soundtracked the opening moments of the film Drive, so it’s only fitting that the official video for “Renegade” unfurls like a condensed feature film. After three criminals send him flying through the windows of a skyscraper.
Alexandre Courtès (Daft Punk, U2, Jamiroquai), who directed the video, explains, “I wanted to include Kavinsky in a real movie where he is the hero. With all the love and references he and I share, we pay homage to the film craft we cherish. Kavinsky is back with a bang !…. wait, no actually it’s three bangs.” Kavinsky produced “Renegade” at Paris’ legendary Motorbass studio in collaboration with Victor Le Masne and Gaspard Augé (half of the group Justice). The three producers wrote the song with Cautious Clay.
Kavinsky was chosen by Daft Punk to open for their 2007 “Alive” world tour, and later toured alongside The Rapture, Justice and SebastiAn. His songs have been tapped for numerous commercials and video games.
