Jaakko Eino Kalevi has announced a new album called Out Of Touch, due October 12th on Weird World; it follows up the underappreciated collaborative album with Long-Sam as Man Duo from last year. Kalavi describes the new album as “essential, blissed out.”

The first cut to be released from the album, 'Emotions In Motion', makes good on that promise - siphoning the weight out of emotions and leaving just the fun and frisky veneer. His playful vocal coasts atop a stylish synth bed and subtly propulsive beats. With some extra sonic sparks thrown in for fun, including a luscious sax solo, 'Emotions In Motion' promises that Out Of Touch will be a simple delight.

'Emotions In Motion' also comes with a humorous video, which you should watch below. Beneath we have quotes from both the film's director and from Jaakko about its creation.

Directed by visual artist Ieva Kabasinskaite, the video was shot in Paris on 35mm and 16mm film. Kabasinskaite says: “The ‘Emotions In Motion’ video is inspired by the techniques used by smugglers of counterfeit luxury goods. In the video, Jaakko Eino Kalevi plays someone who is well-versed in these techniques and we see him going through these meticulous procedures. Through a bizarre visual complicity between the organic containers and their opulent content, the value of these things, as well as where they come from, is being questioned.”

Jaakko adds: “We shot the first part of the video in a busy market in Belleville. I thought I would’ve been more nervous about shooting among people but in the end I wasn’t. I wanted to buy a tracksuit but after the shoot the seller had disappeared.”
