Bedouine is the project of singer/songwriter Azniv Korkejian. She released her self-titled debut album in 2017 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 brand new song, “When You’re Gone,” via a video for the track (which is out now via Spacebomb). Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates, including her SXSW appearances.

Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones, Michael Kiwanuka) produced the song in his LA studio and the video was filmed in Iceland during Iceland Airwaves and at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, which is where the strings were recorded.

Korkejian had this to say about the song in a press release: “When I started ‘When You’re Gone’ I was just messing around with pretty chords. Then the lyrics spontaneously came to me much later when I read something on Instagram, which is kind of hilarious. It triggered a line that eventually rolled out the entire song. In retrospect I think it reflects on the time since I’ve released my first record; in nondescript hotel rooms alone or getting dropped off a cliff after tour is over, not exactly sure what to do with myself. It also touches on what that can mean when it comes to the people you’re closest to. My favorite part may be the delicate intro that’s tucked away in the record as a hidden track.”

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, Savannah, and 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.
