Savages’ Jehnny Beth shares new track ‘I’m The Man’

Earlier this year when Peaky Blinders was in full swing. The brilliant Jehnny Beth, of Savages fame, used the show’s soundtrack to debut a snippet of new material, and now she’s shared the whole track.

A blistering offering, ‘I’m The Man’ is the second solo work to come from Jehnny Beth, with the first being her soundtrack for the Chelsea Manning documentary, XY Chelsea.

“‘I’m The Man’ is an attempted study on humankind,” Jehnny says, of the track, “what we define as evil and the inner conflict of morality. Because it is much easier to label the people who are clearly tormented by obsessions as monsters than to discern the universal human background which is visible behind them. However, this song has not even a remote connection with a sociological study, collective psychology, or present politics; It is a poetic work first and foremost. Its aim is to make you feel, not think.”

The track also lands ahead of her new new television show, ECHOES, which is set to air later this year.

Johnny Hostile chose Camille Berthonier, better known as Jehnny Beth, and even better known as a singer of the band Savages. A collaboration that makes sense because who knows Johnny better than Jehnny artistically? Already together in London in the 2000s, they compose many soundtracks for Chanel. An intimate piece illustrated by immersive shots, worthy of an experimental documentary.  ‘xy chelsea’ the film about Chelsea Manning for which Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth have composed the soundtrack will have its worldwide premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

The Danish master of dark electronica is set to return with a new album in September, Trentemøller is back, promising to deliver his much anticipated fourth full length album in just a few months time. Fixion will be the name of the record, and will neatly follow on from where the artist’s 2013 release Lost left off, set to be a “uniquely atmospheric and darkly romantic” successor to the rest of Anders Trentemøller’s acclaimed back catalogue.

Getting the excitement rolling, Trentemøller has also announced that Jehnny Beth vocalist of the band Savages fame will feature on two of the album’s tracks, the first of which, ‘River In Me’.

“I’ve been a huge Savages fan since their debut record…” says Trentemøller. “She has this really intense and unique voice and it ended up being really challenging, and fun, to take that voice out of the Savages’ universe and into mine.”

‘River In Me’ is the first single from the new album ‘Fixion’

This concert video, filmed in March before a sold-out crowd at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., the London band Savages is by turns tender and ferocious as it showcases tracks from its latest album, Adore Life. Savages’ lead singer Jehnny Beth is a revelation: Even as she challenges the audience to match the group’s energy from every corner of the stage — as well as catapulting herself onto the audience at one point — it’s Beth’s emotional, life-affirming lyrics that leave the strongest impression.

London rockers Savages perform a song off of their latest album “Adore Life.”

Savages continue to win the hearts and minds of the world, this time with a performance of their enigmatic track ‘Adore’ from their recent LP Adore Life.

Jehnny Beth and co. keep the potency seen in their recent domination of London’s Roundhouse and send a chill down the airwaves to all that were watching this spine-tingling performance.

To be honest, we have yet to see a performance from Savages that wasn’t in some way spine tingling.

Savages release their towering, fearsome sophomore album Adore Life, and you should go cop that. Last night, the band proved why. They rolled through Jimmy Kimmel Live, making a whole lot of noise and looking like very fashionable wraiths. On the show proper, they howled through “The Answer,” and as an online bonus, they did the quieter but somehow more intense “Adore.” On both songs, they absolutely slayed. Watch both performances below.

The duo shared a hazy video for their version of Sort Sol and Lydia Lunch’s track ‘Boy/Girl’.

An absurdist video for their cover of Sort Sol and Lydia Lunch’s 1984 single “Boy/Girl,” which sublimates the dizziness of the original into a blitzing buzz that’s uniquely theirs. the duet between Julian Casablancas and Savages singer Jehnny Beth has seemed since its announcement to be a match in leather-clad heaven, and the resulting cover of a haywire Danish punk classic fulfills on the collaboration’s promise.

Watch the video here in advance of the single’s December 18th release on Casablancas’ Cult Records.
