Today, Bedouine returns with new song When You’re Gone

This song continues her creative partnership with Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones, Michael Kiwanuka) who produced the song in his LA studio. When You’re Gone follows her self-titled debut in June 2017 and an extensive tour of the UK and Europe alongside Father John Misty, Michael Kiwanuka and Matthew E. White, as well as Kevin Morby, José González, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Fleet Foxes, Waxahatchee, Real Estate and more in the US

Speaking of the track Bedouine says: “When I started ‘When You’re Gone’ I was just messing around with pretty chords. Then the lyrics spontaneously came to me much later when I read something on Instagram, which is kind of hilarious. It triggered a line that eventually rolled out the entire song. In retrospect I think it reflects on the time since I’ve released my first record; in nondescript hotel rooms alone or getting dropped off a cliff after tour is over, not exactly sure what to do with myself. It also touches on what that can mean when it comes to the people you’re closest to. My favorite part may be the delicate intro that’s tucked away in the record as a hidden track”

The video for ‘When You’re Gone’ was filmed in Iceland (during Iceland Airwaves) and at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, where the strings were recorded – take a listen below…

Bedouine will play at SXSW 2019 next week including showcases hosted by Stereogum, Paste, Netflix, Desert Daze, and Spacebomb/Virginia is for Music Lovers. Following that she heads to London on March 22nd for a sold out show at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room

Bedouine has a story to match the name. Azniv Korkejian, born in Aleppo, Syria to Armenian parents, spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. Living at various times in Boston, Houston, Lexington, Austin, and Savannah, she eventually found a community of musicians in Los Angeles that felt like home. Eschewing notions of nomadic chic, Bedouine represents minimalism motivated by travel, paring down and paring down until only the essential remains
