Bay Area Collective The Seshen Announce New Album + Drop Video for "Flames & Figures"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Long time OKP favorites The Seshen are about to make their return with a new album. The Bay Area collective will release their second full-length album, Flames & Figures on October 14th via Tru Thoughts. The album release will be followed by a brief tour run in support of their first album in 2 years. We’ve got more than just album announcements and tour dates though, The Seshen also released the official video for the title track, “Flames & Figures.”

The Seshen lead vocalist Lalin St. Juste describes the track:

‘Flames & Figures' came from a stream of consciousness as I sat alone in my room, wrapping my mind around all the work that needs to be done in order to feel close to each other… I can often isolate myself, but what I know is that there is something deeper within all of us that can be unlocked when we let ourselves go and bridge the gap that exists between us. This song is that process, it is that expression of is knowing that love is both sorrowful and beautiful and I'm willing and open for it all.

Video directed by Dominic Mercurio. You can pre-order Flames & Figures via Tru Thoughts.
