Enigmatic French artist Tchami today announced his forthcoming After Life EP, unveiling a riveting music video to introduce the release’s title track.
Directed by CHIVTEAM studio’s Charles-Edouard Dangelser, the music video features a bearded man confronting his own mortality through a beachfront allegory involving a swimming siren who leads him to his underwater end.
Watch the full music video premiere of Tchami’s “After Life” exclusively on Billboard:
“After Life” commences with eerie synthesizers and spoken vocal snippets, building from its brooding question — “Where do I go in the after life?” — to a climactic driving bass drop.

The release signals the continued evolution of Tchami’s signature sound, frequently referred to as “future house,” which slots classic house elements like prominent plucked basslines and shuffling hi-hats within modern arrangements tailored for quick-shifting DJ sets.
No further release information has been announced.
