STARWALKER – Air’s JB Dunckel & Bang Gang’s Bardi Johannsson – Premiere New Song

Starwalker – French electro-pop trailblazer Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air) and acclaimed Icelandic composer and musical visionary Barði Jóhannsson (Bang Gang) – will release their self-titled debut album on April 1st, and today they share a new single. “Holidays,” is the glistening album opener, featuring a blissful, Icelandic children’s choir.

Starwalker offered a first look at the album at the end of last year, premiering the gorgeously hypnotic “Le President” via Pitchfork, and recently announced the record with the album’s first single “Everybody’s Got Their Own Way.” CLICK HERE to listen via Stereogum now.

Out on Prototyp Recording & Bang ehf via Sena ehf, Starwalker’s debut album proves this venture is by no means just a side project – it is the coming-together of two musical innovators, creating the music they were destined to make. The album intermingles cinematic expanse, intergalactic instrumentation, entrancing electronics, and sticky hooks, yielding a poetic pop pastiche of the highest order. The result is an accomplished debut, 10 tracks reflecting a singular vision from two musical icons.
