It’s been eight years since Ed Banger darling Sebastian released an album, and though he released a sexy song about vaginas in 2017, he wants you to know, he’s matured.
“Run For Me” featuring Gallant is a song with big feelings and cinematic levels of wonder. “We made it in one day, in one take without stopping..The melody evolved wherever it seemed to want to go all by itself. I tracked Gallant down for the vocals, because he shared the same power and logic that the song aimed to have, and I wasn’t disappointed..” Sebastian said.
Inspired by his work with Frank Ocean, it starts out all new-school R&B, beautiful and dramatic over hymnal organ decorated in Gallant’s silk-sheet lilt.
The music video is directed by Todd Tourso: “Run For Me” becomes a literal car chase between a doomed young couple and the cops.
“I wanted to create something that felt like an epic tragic love story, but the post-communist version, completely stripped of context..” Tourso is quoted.
“Run For Me” will appear on Sebastian’s forthcoming album, scheduled for release in fall.
