AIR has consistently pushed the boundaries of electronic music, with soundscapes and impeccable production having earned them a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album.

Known for her soul-stirring vocals and unique flair, Faith rose to fame with her 2009 debut album, ‘Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?’. Southampton Summer Sessions guests can anticipate hearing tracks from her fiercely personal upcoming sixth studio album ‘The Glorification of Sadness’, alongside beloved favourites such as ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ and ‘Lullaby’.
