Black Atlass is quite literally the only artist on earth to soundtrack Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent ads while featuring on Action Bronson songs. This diverse appeal is a testament to the captivating voice of Alex Fleming, the young singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and who created Black Atlass as a vehicle for his unique vocals, heart-on-sleeve lyrics and experimental production techniques.
Following the well-received “Paris” single and Young Bloods EP (the latter a personal favorite of visionary director Woodkid, who created mind-bending visuals for single “Jewels” featuring Fleming and supermodel Anja Rubik) and this spring’s free Jade release, “Haunted Paradise” is the first of three new Black Atlass singles on Fool’s Gold, which will later be accompanied by a series of self-published zines featuring original work from Fleming himself.
The song made its world premier this Saturday on Jaden Smith’s MSFTS FREQUENCY Beats 1 show, awash in stark guitar riffs and dubby reverb. The moody beauty of “Haunted Paradise” sets the stage for a new creative phase of Black Atlass, and we can’t wait to hear what he’s working on next… download “Haunted Paradise” on iTunes or stream on Spotify now.

The moody beauty of Black Atlass’ Young Bloods EP standout “Jewels” gets a truly next-level video treatment from Woodkid, premiered today via The FADER. The clip features Black Atlass and supermodel Anja Rubik interacting in a surreal and completely artificial environment built frame-by-frame by the director. “The reality pictured in this video only exists in the computer I used to create the piece,” says Woodkid. “It’s fascinating and alienating too.” Watch it now and get the Young Bloods EP on iTunes.

Montreal’s Black Atlass is a voice you can’t forget, charting new territory somewhere in-between modern R&B, experimental electronic production, and classic singer/songwriter confessionals. It pulses all throughout the new Young Bloods EP, six tracks that more than live up to their title with knotty chords, unexpectedly muscular beats, and the ethereal vocals that tie it all together. From “Blossom’s” handclap funk and the D’Angelo worthy boom bap of “Free Angel” to the primal howl of distorted closer “Jewels,” Young Bloods is the latest chapter in the story of a raw and electrifying new talent. Get it now on iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
