Woodkid released his first EP, Iron, in 2011 and The Golden Age, his first album, in 2013. “Run Boy Run,” his single, was nominated for a 2013 Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video, which he directed himself. In December 2019 he announced the release of a new album in 2020.
The Sunday Times of London described him as a “dark epic pop wunderkind.”
