Celebrated French producer and songwriter, Yuksek has just revealed an exciting video for his latest single video ‘Live Alone’ which features singer Roman Rappak (Breton) and is taken from his forthcoming album ‘Nous Horizon’, being released on 24th February 2017 via his own label Partyfine.
The music video for ‘Live Alone’ is an incredible collaboration between Yuksek and ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet on the International Space Station.
Astronaut Thomas Pesquet said of the video, ‘Music makes the world go round, and listening to music as we circle Earth helps me feel connected to home and keeps me motivated. The idea for this video came from talking with Yuksek in Paris before my launch and I am glad we both found the time to make it happen. I don’t think there have been any other music videos made in space and this one is great, thanks to his talent!’
Yuksek adds, ‘I’ve always been in awe of astronauts and when I first met Thomas I had thousands of questions I wanted to ask him! Now we are firm friends and it felt a bit unreal to speak with someone about to leave the planet when he left for this mission. My album was not totally finished when Thomas took off but I loved the thought that that one the first people listening to my record would be doing it from space! We both thought “Live Alone” would be the perfect title to do a video mixing space frames and studio shots and a result we’ve got something totally unique; a music video shot from space with the vision of a cosmonaut listening to my music. I still can’t quite believe it.’
