Song of the Day: Wax Tailor – Just A Candle feat. Mark Lanegan

Renowned producer Wax Tailor just released his new single and music video for Just A Candle featuring Mark Lanegan, the singer from Screaming Trees nad Queens Of The Stone Age, one of the last greats of grunge era. The single was followed by Wax Tailor fantastic new album The Shadow Of Their Suns via Lab'oratoire.

The LP is the producer’s first studio album to be released in 5 years; treating the fans to an array of darkly elegant "sound features' accompanied by a new and prestigious cast. On the album, listeners will find a wealth of impressive artists beside Mark Lanegan, including Del the Funky Homosapien (Gorillaz, Hieroglyphics), D Smoke (Winner Netflix Rythm + Flow, the new west coast scene sensation), the late Gil Scott Heron, Rosemary Standley (Moriarty), Mr LIF (Thievery Corporation, Def Jux), Yugen Blakrok (noticed alongside Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples on the Black Panther album), Adeline (Brooklyn’s Best Kept secret soul singer), Boog Brown (Detroit femcee). With 6 studio albums and more than 800 concerts in 60 countries and numerous awards, Wax Tailor is recognized as one of the main ambassadors of the electro-hip hop international scene. 

Speaking of the inspiration for the album Wax Tailor said: "The Shadow Of Their Suns’ is an allegory for the different kind of powers that control our world. I’ve always kept this image in mind of the 99% who live in the shadow of these artificial lights,  segregation, politics and mass-media. From a musical point of view, I really wanted to give more space to instrumental arrangements and my own storytelling around this topic. I’m not a lesson-giver but nothing is really neutral, we live in a sick world and music can be food for thought so I’ve tried to work in this direction.”
