The forthcoming Album will be released in April. And Sega Bodega announces run of EU festivals, including Field Day.

Paris/London based artist and producer Sega Bodega shares brand new single ‘’Set Me Free, I’m an Animal’ as well as a stunning music video directed by Claire & Rick Farin (Actual Objects).


The content of ‘Set Me Free. I’m an Animal’ explores feelings around physical and emotional restraint. The official video by Actual Objects (production credits include Caroline Polachek, Charli XCX, Yves Tumor) extends the sentiment of feeling lost, trapped in a situation that you can’t control, into a visual scenario. What happens if you surrender yourself to the natural course of things? How much of this experience is real, if no one else is there to experience it with you?

Sega Bodega is currently mid-way through an 8 week ‘Lose Yourself with..’ Sunday night residency on BBC 6Music with guests such as BEA1991, POiSON GiRL FRiEND and Marina Herlop — listen back to all episodes so far HERE.

‘Set Me Free, I’m An Animal’ is the third single to be drawn from Sega Bodega’s upcoming solo album project due later this spring, with more details to be announced soon. Last month the Paris based artist shared ‘Deer Teeth’, a biting cut of left-field electronica which currently features on the BBC Radio 6Music playlist. In late 2022, he also shared  ‘Kepko’, which was also playlisted at 6Music and features on the forthcoming album.

The new record follows a wildly successful string of acclaimed production work for other artists including Shygirl’s Mercury nominated album ‘Nymph’, Caroline Polachek, Eartheater and more. 

Born in Ireland, raised in Glasgow and now based in Paris, producer, performer and label head Sega Bodega – AKA Salvador Navarrete – has built a reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative and precocious creative minds. His impact spans music, fashion and film, soundtracking some of the most important cultural moments in recent years, as well as building a catalogue of solo releases that traverse genre, style and composition.

In late 2022, Sega released the 6Music playlisted single ‘Kepko’ closely followed by a remix of Björk’s ‘Ovule’ in early 2023. Sega Bodega’s last full release – 2021’s Romeo – showcases an otherworldly production style that has marked him as a pioneer within the alternative and electronic worlds. A true multi-hyphenate, alongside his two solo albums, Bodega has been a crucial hand in countless projects over the past decade, from the development of artists under his NUXXE label, to production for other artists, and work with fashion brands such as Bottega Veneta and Nike.
