The singer debut his first single with a parody make-up tutorial.

French producer Joakim has announced his sixth album, Samurai, which will be released March 17. It is the follow-up to his 2014 album Tropics Of Love.

According to the press release, Samurai is influenced by Joakim’s journeys through New York, Paris and Tokyo and draws from a wide range of inspirations including new age music and Yukio Mishima’s critical writings on the famous spiritual Samurai text Hagakure.

You can hear the first single ‘Numb’ through its Adrian Yu-directed music video which Joakim introduces in the style of popular YouTube make-up tutorials.
