Just a few weeks ago, José Miguel Conejo Torres, known artistically as Leivaconcluded his successful tour When you bite your lip with three historic full houses at the WiZink Center in Madrid, which, together with the two previous ‘sold out’, totaled a whopping 75,000 tickets in the same venue in their hometown and which also had Ruben Pozo as a guest artist, with whom he formed the Spanish rock band Lazinesswith which he recorded six albums until their separation in 2011.

Now, Leiva has just launched Sashimi, a song that becomes their way of saying see you later. The song was recorded in 2023 at the Panoram studios in Mexico City and at the Sonic Ranch in Texas, under the production of Adam Jodorowsky, who also played bass. To complete the band, Leiva, who took charge of the acoustic guitar, the electric guitar, the percussions and the voice, has been accompanied by the drummer Julien Boyékeyboardist Cesar Pop and the singer Esmeralda Escalante.

Besides, The song comes accompanied by a unique video clip, since it has been composed from recordings from his own camera, an analog Super 8, which give more emotion to the song. A very personal clip in which, on many occasions, it is Leiva who holds the camera.

Filmed in Japan, Mexico, USA or Spain, the video is an emotional visual journeywhich combines the experiences of a singing star (dressing rooms, roads, studios, stages and hotels) with the more everyday experiences of the artist, who we can see in the naturalness of everyday life, jogging, cooking, showering, dancing, or toasting life with friends.
