YASMINE HAMDAN’S NEW ALBUM IS OUT
How exciting! On Friday, March 17th, Yasmine Hamdan released her second solo album “Al Jamilat” (The Beautiful Ones).
Lebanese and Arab underground royalty, Yasmine was initially known for her duo Soapkills, with was one of the first indie/electronic band to exist in the Middle East. She even did an appearance in the movie “Only Lovers Left Alive.” Being in the same movie as Tilda Swinton is a big, big deal.
Not shy from collaborations, Yasmine produced the album alongside UK producers Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, Lily Allen) and Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Carl Barât), and recorded it with contributions from NY musicians Steve Shelley (Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, John Zorn, Marc Ribot) and Shahzad Ismaily (Sonic Youth).
