Rising Australian band Vancouver Sleep Clinic will release their debut album, Revival, April 7 on Sony Music Entertainment/RAL. The video for album track “Someone To Stay” premieres today via Sweet on Snapchat—watch it here. Revival is available for preorder on iTunes.
Revival was created over a two year period, when Tim Bettinson, the creative force behind Vancouver Sleep Clinic, travelled from his native Australia to Los Angeles to work with producer Al Shux, known for his work on Grammy Award-winning hits like Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” and with artists including Lana Del Rey and Lianne La Havas. Bettinson and Shux worked together to bring his demos to life, bringing in elements like string ensembles and a children’s choir while retaining Bettinson’s singular vision. Bettinson says, “When I started envisioning the album, I knew I wanted it to be very progressive and draw from different genres. I come from folk and instrumental music, and what I wanted was something more like hip-hop and R&B. So when I brought my demos to Al, he really understood what I wanted to do. I wanted to make big statements, and he helped make that possible.”
Bettinson recruited artists to craft visuals for every aspect of Revival. The video for “Someone To Stay” premiering today is directed by Georgia Hudson (Ellie Goulding, Glass Animals, MØ) and was shot in New York. The album and single cover art showcase digital sculptures by Swedish artist Pandagunda and design by Argentinean artist Pilar Zeta.
Vancouver Sleep Clinic recently embarked on their first-ever North American tour as the opening act for Daughter and performed headline shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco. “Someone To Stay” is the third single from their upcoming debut album. Previously released singles, “Lung” and “Killing Me To Love You” are available now for immediate download when you preorder Revival.
