French singer-songwriter and producer Petit Biscuit returns with “Drivin Thru The Night”, an ode to freedom – which can be found elsewhere than in love.

With this captivating first single, Petit Biscuit presents a retro-futuristic universe, seemingly inspired by Blade Runner 2049. A solitary man walks freely in the streets, then meets a mysterious woman, who takes part in his nightly adventures in the maze of the city. They find refuge in each other, and one would think that this is the beginning of a love story, but Petit Biscuit explains that it isn’t. “Most people think they need love to exist, but it’s not true. It’s possible to live and exist on your own. You don’t need anyone else. I wrote the lyrics to this song in Iceland, where I was quarantined for months. I missed my loved ones, but at the same time I didn’t feel any pressure from anyone, so I got the idea of this lonely man, who is obviously me, and this whole story that follows.”

The song ends with the words of his new sidekick, who, like him, says that love is not the only thing that can make a heart beat: “Freedom has no price. Freedom makes life worth living.”
