Kid Francescoli shares the full-length musical gem off which the tracks were taken, an LP entitled Sunset Blue, out now via all DSPs. This year, Kid Francescoli (the electro-pop project of French musician Mathieu Hocine, author of international hit “Moon”) shared a slew of new singles, including “1986,” “You Are Everywhere” (ft. Turbo Goth), and “Run Run.”

Kid Francescoli achieved his new LP (his personal holy grail) with a five-stars cast of collaborators: he orchestrated a great 21st-century pop-music album produced by French79, mixed by Stan Neff (Polo & Pan, Kungs, Christine and the Queens) and mastered by Alex Gopher (Daft Punk, The Blaze, Bon Entendeur). The record, as indicated with this first track, is a new turning point between organic and electronic, both a mediterranean travel and a Californian dream, a bridge between Ennio Morriconne and modern electronic music.

The record is also the logical continuation of Kid Francescoli’s previous successes, which made the world dream and dance: “Nopalitos,” “Blow Up,” and “Moon” (certified diamond with more than 200M streams, along with huge success on TikTok where Lizzo, Jennifer Lopez, and millions of users have used this track, but also Emily in Paris on Netflix or ads like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Xbox). His most recent success and the creation of his first original soundtrack with AZURO installed him as one of the best French songwriters of his generation, with a unique signature sound.
