SASAMI shares video for “Free” from the debut album you had no idea was coming since TMT is your only source of news from the outside world

This post was originally published on this site

Former Cherry Glazer member and French Horn enthusiast Sasami Ashworth has just shared the video for “Free”—the fourth single off her upcoming debut album — which gives us the perfect opportunity to let the world know that said-album is coming out in the first place (not like the announcement was made a month ago or anything).

So here you go: SASAMI by SASAMI will be out on March 8 via Domino.

A wistful, slow-burning rock ballad with a backing-vocal cameo from Devendra Banhart, “Free” talks about how “sometimes when you lose in love, freedom is the consolation prize, and in that way, you’ve actually transcended,” which makes me think that Nintendo Switch I bought myself after my last breakup was a waste of money. The video was shot in Australia earlier this year by director Riley Blakeway.

One last thing you might’ve not known about SASAMI is that she’s likely the hardest-working solo performer on the planet right now, seemingly on tour or in the studio all 366 days of the year. Which means she’s likely to bring her melodic rock to *your* town this Spring, so be sure to skim her tour dates after clicking the album pre-order link and watching the video for “Free” below:
