TSHA has released “Running”, the final single to be taken from her long-awaited debut album Capricorn Sun, out October 7th via Ninja Tune. The track arrives alongside an official video directed by Parisian visual artist and animator Danaé Gosset, who has worked previously with the likes of Mitski, Mac Miller and Boyz Noize. Watch the video now below.
“For this video we used some prompt-based Artificial Intelligence technology to generate the different video backgrounds,” Gosset explains. “We first experimented with a lot of different prompts to get the different visual elements. With only changing one word the output was completely different. Once we had the AI base, we then proceeded to illustrate them frame by frame to make them vibrant, full of textures and colors. We used a variety of mediums such as watercolor, gouache, acrylic, color pencils, and more. We then layered and collaged a lot of 3D elements on top of it to make the video feel special and tailored to the song.”
“The story we aimed to communicate is about escaping, embracing, and surrendering to the unexpected,” continues Gosset. “Pushing the metaphysical and mystical sense of the human experience, feeling that we belong from the sole exploration of our minds and into the infinity of space. We focused a lot on the musicality of the track. We tried to find a journey that escalates and changes its rhythm and pace along with it. While doing that we kept the protagonist in focus as we evolve through the trip from a literal point of view, which slowly escalates into an abstract and psychedelic visual exploration of self-introspection and imagination.”
The album follows her recent compilation for the revered ‘fabric presents’ series and an immense touring schedule that has seen her booked for over 100 shows across 2021/22, including opening for Disclosure at Alexandra Palace, performing to 40,000 fans across the West Coast of America with Bob Moses, a string of North American shows with Flume — including a stop at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre — a festival run that included multiple sets at Glastonbury in June, Lollapalooza in Chicago, a sold-out debut headline set at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, NYC and an ongoing residency at Ibiza’s DC-10 for Circoloco.
