Bedouine is the project of singer/songwriter Azniv Korkejian. She released her self-titled debut album last June via Matthew E. White's Spacebomb label. It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017 and one of our Top 15 Debut Albums of 2017. Now she has shared a video for "Deep Space," a bonus track from the deluxe edition of the album. Robert Beatty directed the video, which has a retro feel. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Korkejian had this to say about the song and video in a press release: "I wrote 'Deep Space' on a plane as I was mid-conversation with my neighbor, logging lyrics as he tried to explain his life to me. He said he lived on the Marshall Islands where he maintained satellites for deep space. The song describes being afraid of the unknown even though you're the one steering yourself there. I was on my way to meet my label for the first time so the confluence of the circumstance and the conversation inspired the song for sure. Nervous and excited, I wondered what new trajectory I was veering into. I knew almost instantly that Robert would make the perfect video for it and he did."

Read our 2017 interview with Bedouine.

Korkejian was born in Aleppo, Syria to Armenian parents, but spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia and then moved to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. She's lived all over the U.S., including Boston, Houston, Lexington, Austin, and Savannah, but is currently based in Los Angeles. Musically she's got a '60s/'70s singer/songwriter vibe akin to First Aid Kit or Laura Marling, with some hints of Natalie Prass too.
