St Germain announces return with third studio album

Fifteen years after the release of the legendary 'Tourist', French house icon St Germain is set to make a return to the scene with the announcement of a third studio album to be released in October.

The self-titled album further builds on Germain's deep house roots, incorporating a love of blues and jazz with his trademark hypnotic electronic loops and vocal samples. Much of the album was recorded live with the participation of African musicians on traditional Malian instruments.

The album's first single, 'Real Blues', is a fiery, percussion-driven track layered with the smooth vocals of blues legend Lightnin' Hopkins. Expect the track to become a staple at poolside sets throughout the summer.

St Germain is set to tour his album through Europe later in the year, including a gig at London's Troxy on November 17th.
