Nick Hakim is releasing a new album later this year. Cometa, the follow-up to last year’s Small Things, will be released on October 21 via ATO. Hakim has also shared a new single called “Happen,” which features Alex G on piano and Mark Ronson and Andrew Bird collaborator Abe Rounds on drums. Watch the new video for “Happen” below.
Directed by Johan Carlsson, the “Happen” visual was filmed in Stockholm at Studio 24. In a statement, Carlsson explained:
Cometa follows Hakim’s earlier albums Small Things and Will This Make Me Good. The new LP, which takes its name from the Spanish word for “kite,” was recorded in various homes and studios in California, Texas, North Carolina, and New York. In a statement, Hakim described the release as a collection of love songs. “The key is to find that extremity of love for yourself,” he said. “It’s about growing into someone you want to be; it’s about finding pure love within yourself when the world around us seems to be crumbling.”
