Air’s Nicolas Godin Space Travels for Latest Music Video 'The Foundation'

Having last month shared ‘The Border’ from his upcoming solo album ‘Concrete and Glass’, Air's Nicolas Godin has now shared a video for new track ‘The Foundation’ which features guest vocals from Cola Boyy.
 
The accompanying video, directed by Greg Barnes and shot on 16mm, plays into the ethereal synth-led track with an interstellar narrative. “The track felt so out-of-this-world and intrepid all at once” said Greg, “the concept of mankind exploring space fell into place almost immediately, and the excitement of creating a sci-fi visual for the song stayed with me throughout the whole process.”
 
Of the track Nicolas says: “Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House #21 was the starting point for this song. Well, at least that’s how I presented the music to its future singer, Cola Boyy. I told him about the project’s architectural origins, explaining that he must let his own personal inspiration run free for the lyrics. I always thought that a concept was the perfect way to start a record, but then you should soon let the music take over. A good record is one in which the music seizes control pretty fast. I’ve applied this rule to each album I’ve been lucky enough to record, with only one mantra: ‘It’s the music that decides’. This song is the perfect example of this”.
