Next week, ODESZA‘s highly anticipated new album, In Return (out Sept. 9th on Counter Records (a Ninja Tune imprint)), will officially be released into the world and available on vinyl and CD. This marks the first time ever ODESZA is releasing music on any physical format. In Return is also currently available exclusively via iTunes in the US. It’s an album that places ODESZA firmly in the vanguard of electronic music’s coming of age. As of this week, In Return is currently #1 on the iTunes Electronic Top Albums Chart and #21 on the overall Top Albums Chart. Lead single “Say My Name” has already graced the top of the Hype Machine popular chart and the US Spotify Viral Chart, reached #2 on the Global Spotify Viral Chart and is currently iTunes Single of the Week in the US.
Today, ODESZA is excited to share a brand new music video to accompany the hit single. Premiered via Twitter Music and Red Bull, the “Say My Name” music video is a stunning visual artifact, featuring actress Stephanie Hunt (Californication, Glee, Friday Night Lights) with direction from Ian Pons Jewell. Jewell says, “The video has its roots in my first trip to LA visiting one of my best friends. I had no real idea what to expect, but was met with two worlds, one joyous, full of sun, and then its underbelly, a very dark weird place… The video is an attempt to capture the two sides of the coin, and shows a person hitting the wall of illusion.”
ODESZA’s In Return North American tour kicks off next week and starts with a bang. The first five headline shows are already sold out and the tour continues to grow. ODESZA just announced a second headline date at The Showbox in their hometown of Seattle. They’ve also announced after parties in San Francisco and Brooklyn. ODESZA’s first ever in-store performance and signing will take place at Amoeba Music in LA. All show info is available via odesza.com.
