Finnish multi-instrumentalist Jaakko Eino Kalevi is releasing a new album, Out of Touch, on October 12 via Domino imprint Weird World. Previously he shared a video for its first single, “Emotions in Motion” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now he has shared another new song from the album, “People in the Centre of the City,” via a video for the song. Gwenaëlle Trannoy directed the video, which intercuts shots of Kalevi wandering around London with four female models dancing in a photo studio. Watch it below.

In a press release, Kalevi says “People in the Centre of the City” was influenced by his time as a tram driver in Helsinki: “I began to notice that sometimes people in the city would have so much perfume on that the whole tram would smell really strongly but so perfectly.”

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 previous press release said 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 previous 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.”
