Haux—the artist moniker of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Woodson Black—today released “Fever In The Night,” a new collaborative track with rising Swedish producer Samuraii from their forthcoming 4-song EP due out on November 20th via Color Study. Directed once again by Johnny Marchetta & Bjorn Franklin, the video is a continuation of the EPs lead single, “Run Run,” featuring its two protagonists dancing across the desert. “‘Fever in The Night’ is about learning how to communicate feelings of vulnerability, like depression, despite my fears or how it might affect my relationships with others,” explains Black.
Fever In The Night follows the July release of Haux’s sparse and intimate debut album Violence In A Quiet Mind (Color Study), which earned acclaim from Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, VMAN, Grammy.com, American Songwriter, FLOOD, CLASH, and Gold Flake Paint, among others. Samuraii, who is best known for his remix work for artists like Tove Lo, Astrid S, and Loote, first collaborated with Haux on a remix of the 2017 single “Caves.” Showcasing captivating genre versatility, Fever In The Night blends Haux’s folk-tinged sound with Samuraii’s soaring electronic production. Haux previously explored electro-pop on his recent collaboration with Kygo for “Only Us,” which appeared on the Norwegian DJ’s 2020 album Golden Hour.
Co-produced by Black, his longtime collaborator Jamie Macneal, & Thomas Bartlett, and recorded between sessions at a seaside studio in Scotland & at New York City’s Reservoir Studios, Violence in a Quiet Mind finds Haux processing tragedy and substance abuse across three generations of his family, and attempting to break that cycle. Violence in a Quiet Mind is out now and available to stream HERE.
