New Joakim Release

Joakim has a new full-length on the way via Tigersushi and Because Music.

Samurai is Joakim’s follow-up to his 2014 LP, Tropics Of Love. The press release says the 13-track album was influenced by his journeys between NYC, Tokyo and Paris, as well as new age music and Yukio Mishima’s book, Hagakure: Samurai Ethics & Modern Japan. It follows 2016 singles for Life & Death and the Brazilian imprint Mareh Music.

Leading up to Samurai, Joakim’s released an Adrian Yu-directed video that nods to YouTube makeup tutorials as well as the Kabuki tradition.
