Tamino announces debut LP ‘Amir’, shares haunting new track ‘Persephone

The album also includes Colin Greenwood-featuring track ‘Indigo Nights’.

Communion Records signing Tamino has announced news of his debut LP ‘Amir’, set for release through the label on October 19th.

Alongside news of the LP, the 21-year-old has also unveiled new track ‘Persephone’ - a haunting ballad of lost love based around sparse guitars and Jeff Buckley-esque melancholy, alongside an accompanying monochrome video.

Of Belgian, Egyptian and Lebanese heritage, the singer recently released debut EP ‘Habibi’ including ‘Indigo Nights’, which feature’s Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood on bass guitar. ‘Amir’ also features a backing orchestra of professional musicians predominantly comprised of refugees from Syria and Iraq.

Of the record, Tamino states: “Some of the songs on ‘Amir’ are more on the romantic side, whilst others are more on the apathetic side. In my own life, I can look at the world and at life in both ways depending on my state of being. The conflict creates an imbalance. ‘Amir’ is about balance”.
