Detroit-based artist Shigeto, aka, Zach Saginaw has shared his new single and video “Barry White”. The track is taken from his upcoming album, ‘The New Monday’, due Oct 6th via Ghostly International. Shigeto is also set to play a London show on Oct 9th at Omera.
The importance of the Detroit community has come through strongly in the initial looks from the album. The video for “Detroit Part II” featured intimate shots of the Motor City, and “Don’t Trip” featured Detroit emcee Silas Green. Now Saginaw collaborates with another Detroit native, Zelooperz (as he did on the recent A Piece of the Geto album as ZGTO), in a surreal video for the album track “Barry White” that’s directed by Voiid Studio.
From Voiid Studio: “We wanted to create something both real and surreal, a little dark but also vivid, that reflected the qualities and power of the track, underpinned by Zach and Z’s (Zelooperz) strange world in Detroit. The guys liked our ideas and brought a ton of resources to bear, so we were off to an exhausting, exhilarating, filthy weekend in Detroit and a very, very satisfying collaboration.”
