Bedouine – “When You’re Gone”

Today, Bedouine returns with new song “When You’re Gone.” This song continues her creative partnership with Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones, Michael Kiwanuka) who produced the song in his LA studio. “When You’re Gone” follows her critically acclaimed self-titled debut in June 2017, and the single “Come Down In Time”/ “Hey, Who Really Cares?” from last year. Listen to “When You’re Gone.”

Bedouine’s Azniv Korkejian says about the song:

“When I started ‘When You’re Gone’ I was just messing around with pretty chords. Then the lyrics spontaneously came to me much later when I read something on Instagram, which is kind of hilarious. It triggered a line that eventually rolled out the entire song. In retrospect I think it reflects on the time since I’ve released my first record; in nondescript hotel rooms alone or getting dropped off a cliff after tour is over, not exactly sure what to do with myself. It also touches on what that can mean when it comes to the people you’re closest to. My favorite part may be the delicate intro that’s tucked away in the record as a hidden track.”

The video for “When You’re Gone” was filmed in Iceland (during Iceland Airwaves) and at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, where the strings were recorded.

SXSW 2019 appearances next week include showcases hosted by Stereogum, Paste, Netflix, Desert Daze, and Spacebomb & Virginia is for Music Lovers’ Spacebomb Revue. Today, Bedouine also announces upcoming shows in New York, Los Angeles, and London.

In 2017, Bedouine released her self-titled debut album via Spacebomb Records to widespread critical acclaim including a 5/5 The Independent album review and features everywhere from Vogue and Rolling Stone to The FADER and Stereogum. In the last year, she has toured the US alongside Kevin Morby, Jose Gonzalez, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Fleet Foxes, Waxahatchee, Real Estate and Willie Watson, with sold-out headline show at New York City’s Joe’s Pub (“she sounds like a future legend — the sort of musician one will later wish to have seen back when, at a small performance like this Thursday-night show.” – New York Times).
