Ludovic Navarre will release his third full-length this October—listen to new single "Real Blues" now.
The two St Germain albums to date—1995's Boulevard and Tourist from 2000—stand as bonafide classics of bluesy deep house. This next record, St Germain, sees Ludovic Navarre working alongside African musicians, with traditional Malian instruments like the kora, the balafon and the n'goni used alongside electric guitars, pianos, saxophones and electronic loops. The first single, "Real Blues," has been released today (May 5th). It features the vocals of Lightnin' Hopkins and artwork by Gregos, who's known for creating smiling and frowning faces. Navarre will head out on tour in support of the album in November and December, with 14 shows booked in across Europe.
Listen to "Real Blues" below.
