The man with the golden-scooped beak, Claptone, rises again with “Dear Life,” the first single to be taken from his debut album coming later this year via Different Recordings, the newly resurgent electronic imprint of [PIAS].
“Dear Life” is the next chapter for Claptone and the second glimpse of his first full-length album, which is set for release in Autumn 2015. The mysterious enigma with the golden mask has gone from strength to strength of late, following an acclaimed BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, a Beatport chart-topping smash remix of Gregory Porter and an incredible live show at the Miami Ultra Music Festival.
The single breaks new ground for Claptone as he delves deeper into songwriting. This time he is reunited with French singer Jaw (1/3 of production trio dOP), with whom he previously worked on “’No Eyes,” a big record for him back in 2013 on the notorious Berlin House label Exploited. With “Dear Life,” Claptone has created a spellbinding dance floor ready anthem that’ll sound just as good on your home stereo.
