Finnish multi-instrumentalist Jaakko Eino Kalevi has announced a new album, Out of Touch, and shared a video for its first single, "Emotions in Motion." Out of Touch is due out October 12 via Domino imprint Weird World. Ieva Kabasinskaite directed the "Emotions in Motion" video, which was filmed in Paris on 35mm and 16mm film, and can be watched below. Also below are the album's tracklist and cover art.

Out of Touch is Kalevi's fifth solo album and the follow-up to 2015's self-titled album. Kalevi wrote and produced the album, which was recorded in studios in Helsinki and Berlin, where he currently lives. He plays every instrument on the album, including the saxophone. A press release says the album draws inspiration from some time Kalevi spent in Athens and "broadens his horizons while focusing on his inner self." 

Kalevi had this to say about the album in the press release: "Everyone knows the meaning of out of touch and it usually has negative connotations, such as lacking the latest information. But to be out of touch can be the most ideal state."

Kabasinskaite had this to say about the video for "Emotions in Motion" in the press release: "The 'Emotions in Motion' video is inspired by the techniques used by smugglers of counterfeit luxury goods. In the video, Jaakko Eino Kalevi plays someone who is well-versed in these techniques and we see him going through these meticulous procedures. Through a bizarre visual complicity between the organic containers and their opulent content, the value of these things, as well as where they come from, is being questioned."

Kalevi adds about the video: "We shot the first part of the video in a busy market in Belleville. I thought I would've been more nervous about shooting among people but in the end I wasn't. I wanted to buy a tracksuit but after the shoot the seller had disappeared."
