El Perro Del Mar channels Sade with ‘Walk On By’

The ever melancholic El Perro Del Mar delivers the first single from her upcoming album Pale Fire, set to be released on November 13th. The upbeat Walk On Byexudes a sultry Sade-esque vibe, including just a bit of a tropical flare. And yes, there’s a saxophone – and I love it. There’s even some hand-claps for good measure. The single was delivered along with this message from Sarah Assbring…

‘In this world, you think you have no reason to believe in love or in anything much. Then one day, when you least expect it, a light appears on the far horizon. It’s a flickering light, begging you to come, telling you to stay away. It’s the pale fire. The promise of love and hope – all consuming and elusive. Yet for a moment, it brings clarity in the darkness, future to the ruins and power to the fight.’

Walk On By is out September 4th.
