Hot on the heels of unveiling the first taste of his exciting new global multi-EP project with feelgood single ‘After The Sun’, Kim Churchill today unveils the song’s official clip, alongside the release date of the project’s first EP titled ‘I AM’ and a slew of national and international tour dates.
Directed by Connor Rancan, the official music video for ‘After The Sun’ was shot in and around Berlin. Armed with a camera, the pair went adventuring throughout the historic city, finding areas including Grunewald Forest, Chemiwerk Rüdersdorf, The Spreepark and Brandenburger Tor, in particular looking for places that were abandoned or re-purposed.
Kim explains the inspiration behind the video as follows:
“It started out as a way to contrast the natural and the man-made, but as we started searching the city and finding things, we noticed that there were so many wonderful examples of nature jumping into buildings, re-taking over what it originally owned”.
Since release, ‘After The Sun’ has been added to triple j rotation and supported strongly via Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and YouTube Music. It marks the first single to be released from Kim’s unique new project, which will see the celebrated singer-songwriter release four EP’s over time. The EPs were written and recorded in Germany, Canada, Australia and the UK respectively, in collaboration with local artists and producers.
To coincide with today’s official ‘After The Sun’ music video release, Kim has also revealed that his first EP – recorded and co-produced by house and hip-hop producer Vincent Kottkamp, with additional production by Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Middle Kids, Ruby Fields) – will be entitled ‘I AM’ and be released on Friday May 3.
Kim has further announced a huge run of global tour dates in celebration of the new EP, taking in Germany, South Africa, The Netherlands, France, UK and wrapping up with a national headline run in his native Australia, with stops in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
‘I AM’ will be available worldwide on Friday May 3
