Apparat helped say Goodbye to Breaking Bad Season 4

Gus Fring

I won’t give any spoilers for those who haven’t watched it yet, but that was a sweet use of Apparat‘s “Goodbye” in Sunday night’s Breakng Bad Season 4 finale (the episode that was appropriately titled “face off”). The song comes from Apparat’s new album The Devil’s Walk which was released on 9/27 via Mute. The album’s inspiration/theme is also fitting for for the meth-fueled AMC show and the big scene the song was part of. As NPR points out:

Many electronic musicians cross over into mainstream pop and rock, but Sascha Ring — a.k.a. Apparat — crafts his own unique style of somber yet majestic music. With his latest record, the German producer may find himself reaching a broader audience than ever. The Devil’s Walk, Apparat’s fourth album, creates a soundscape that’s subtle and melancholy, yet also uplifting and cinematic.

The Devil’s Walk, out Sept. 27, began during a lengthy trip Apparat took in 2010 to Mexico, where he worked in a makeshift studio in the town of Sayulita. The album became fully realized later in recording studios located in Europe. The cross-continental journey and combination of cultures helped to define and inspire the right blend of cold electronics with warm strings and keys, along with a dreamlike vocal that drifts in throughout.

Apparat is currently touring Europe. You can listen to the song and view all tour dates, below…
