Air’s Nicolas Godin preps new solo LP, shares “The Border”


Air’s Nicolas Godin will release his second solo album early next year but has given us something to look forward to with this sumptuous single that is dark, sleek but also warm and inviting. “I wrote this song thinking of the great architect Mies van der Rohe,” says Nicolas. “He built the Barcelona pavilion in 1929 on the hill of Montjuic in Barcelona and this building swept away all the past of the history of architecture to open a new page of human history, making the world enter into modern architecture. In short, it’s the story of someone who asks some others to follow him to the Spanish border by the sea to show them a new path towards freedom and peace…leaving everything behind.” The song pretty much exactly what you want from one half of Air — glittery cosmic synths, vocoders, lyrics about acclaimed architects — and the transportive video, directed by Alden Volney, is pretty cool, too.
