Joakim Eyes Fall Release
Despite the fame and notoriety the label has brought to this Parisian producer, debut single "Forever Young" off the forthcoming record will mark the very first single under the Joakim moniker to be officially released through Tigersushi on June 13, 2011.
Despite notable collaborations with artists such as Goldfrapp, Friendly Fires, DJ Mehdi, Cut Copy, Tiga, Fischerspooner, Late of the Pier, Max Berlin and Zombie Zombie - to name a few, the premiere single 'Forever Young' stems from an inspiring place of honesty and self-reverence for Joakim as his self-proclaimed "road to Damascus." He explains:
"'Forever Young' is my song for all the 30-something people out there. I used to hate people between 30 and 40 when I was younger. I thought they gave up on most of their beliefs and lived a dull and false life. Love cowards pretending to still be cool. Contemptuous grown-ups afraid of the young sharks. But now I'm one of THEM. So I have to cope with that."
