Ahead of his upcoming trio of UK dates, including his rescheduled show at London’s KOKO, French producer Fakear has announced his highly-anticipated LP with the release of first single ‘Lost In Time’.
A summery, melodic production ‘Lost In Time’ is the result of a meeting between Fakear, singer Noraa, DJ duo Polo & Pan and Clément Bazin. With uplifting lyrics and layers of intricate percussion, it’s a taste of what to expect from the new album.

Speaking about the collaboration, Fakear said; “It’s funny to think how much this track changed after Polo & Pan added their footprints on it. It reminds me a kind of futuristic childish time travel. I think it’s one of my most colourful tracks.”
“To me, the track symbolises the perfect harmony between melancholy and joy,” says Noraa. “To be “lost in time” means to feel no obligations and to only go with the flow.”
In the last five years, Fakear has become a leader of France’s electronic music scene. In those years, tracks like ‘La Lune Rousse’, ‘Kids’ or ‘Morning In Japan’ have racked up millions of streams and helped to build Fakear an ever diversifying fan base. His debut album, 2016’s Animal, was certified gold. That half-decade period has seen him tour around the world, from the United States to Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, which has helped Fakear further establish his reputation as the international flagbearer for France’s new wave of young electronic talents – he even produced a track for M.I.A. on her 2016 album AIM, and has supported Bonobo and label mates ODESZA on their respective tours. ‘Lost In Time’ is the first taste of a fresh new chapter in this exciting young artist’s career.
