Kavinsky breaks eight-year release silence on first ‘Reborn’ single with Cautious Clay, ‘Renegade’
Life was a lot different when Kavinsky last delivered a single, but the French icon has returned with new music in hand for the first time since his debut album—which set a “new electro standard” as we put it in 2013—OutRun. While information surrounding his full-length, aptly branded sequel Reborn remains scarce at the moment, Kavinsky is beginning to build out its tracklist with his sophomore album’s lead offering, “Renegade” with Cautious Clay.
“Renegade” picks up precisely where Kavinsky left off eight years ago, with the Reborn opener—also available in instrumental form—bringing his unmistakable synthwave savvy into the newest decade. To make his musical comeback official, Kavinsky doesn’t come arrive unaccompanied “Renegade,” tapping Cautious Clay for a smooth vocal backing and a production helping hand from Justice’s Gaspard Augé as well as Victor Le Masne to make the near-decade wait for another release well worth it.
