Some time ago, Woodkid tweeted about the final visual installment to The Golden Age project. When we asked him about it in our interview with him, he revealed that his next project will be focusing on film rather than music.
Discussing how feature films often take four or five years to complete, how difficult it would be to work on new music at the same time, and the close ties the name “Woodkid” has with this project, it sounded like a hint about taking a hiatus from Woodkid.
Today, he officially said goodbye to The Golden Age with a new song—a one-take demo he “recorded on [his] piano last night”—titled “Do You Love Me After All.” Read Woodkid’s closing remarks that accompanied the new song, and listen to “Do You Love Me After All,” below.
The Golden Age has been an incredible adventure.
6 years ago I was just a little indie filmmaker working hard to pay my rent and I wrote my first songs almost as a joke. I would have never thought I’d end up singing on stage for hundreds of thousands of people one day. I’ve carried this project like a baby, every day of my life for 4 years, and got a bit lost sometimes.
I have to take some time off now to think about the future and work on other projects, make more music, soundtracks, open my mind again, focus on my first feature film, and alternative forms of art I want to develop.
Thank you all for being part of this great surprise in my life, thank you for following me.
So here is just a one take demo I recorded on my piano last night.
Nothing better than a good old depressing love song as a goodbye to this album… but don’t worry, I’ll see you very soon.
Do you love me after all ? Because I do.
