The multi-talented artist, Sailor & I, just released his first full-length album, The Invention of Loneliness
A mixer of obscure songwriting and classic European techno and progressive production, Alexander Sjödin proves why Sweden is one of the greatest stables for inspiring quality musicians. He now has his first fully developed piece of work showcasing ten perfect tracks ahead of this upcoming festival season. Sailor & I has already been supported by some of dance music’s most iconic names such as Pete Tong and Eric Prydz. Having seen the same talent and capability in the rising producer, Sailor & I was signed by Black Butter, the same people who signed a young Rudimental and Gorgon City in 2012.
The new album The Invention of Loneliness is now available worldwide through Beatport, Spotify, and the Sailor & I official website. To start off the anticipated Sailor & I album release is “Black Swan.” It begins with a warm and winding synth combined with subtle techno undertones. An edited vocal chants until a progressive build hangs over your head, swirling around for some time before finally plunging into a sexy yet ominous bassline and percussion ensemble.
The second song from The Invention of Loneliness was one of his earlier released singles called “Chameleon.” The single starts off on a much more up-tempo pace, but gets teased and checked down by some vintage male vocals crying out for companionship. The protagonist discusses making the leap of touching the metaphorical flame of love throughout the song. Slowing down to a mere echo of a bassline mid-way through, Sailor & I grasps the concept of properly building a story within a track in “Chameleon.”
Sailor & I has his latest collection of work available for streaming, purchase, and even in signed Vinyl format. View the full track listing to The Invention of Loneliness below:
