Blue Daisy shares new video for ‘Darker Than Blue’, directed by Kamil Dymek
This menacing visual follows yesterday’s world premiere of ‘Darker Than Blue’ on Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 radio show.
In addition to the video, Blue Daisy today announces his new album, also entitled ‘Darker Than Blue’. Uncompromising and ambitious, the record is due out 25th September on R&S Records and can be pre-ordered, with the title track track available instantly. Full tracklist are below.
‘Darker Than Blue’ is an unswervingly honest, highly personal album – Blue Daisy distills his personal experiences in to this cinematic meditation on the clash between the forces of dark and light, yin and yang, good and evil. Wrestling with inner and outer, unconfined to one specific genre, the record traverses brooding rock, intense rap, elements of the blues, and is imbued with a punk attitude and aesthetic throughout. Highlights include gospel-tinged ‘My Heart’, caustic battle hymn and title track ‘Darker Than Blue’, and the blistering ‘Gravediggers’.
Blue Daisy is vocalist, musician and producer The North Londoner’s ambition to make timeless music has resulted in a slow stream of high-caliber releases and thrilling, increasingly adventurous live shows. His debut single was awarded Pitchfork’s coveted ‘Best New Track’ status, and album, The Sunday Gift, was warmly received and heralded as Electronic Album of The Year by MOJO magazine. Then, in 2013, Blue Daisy rebooted and embarked on a new chapter by unleashing the defiantly NSFW track Fuck A Rap Song – The Guardian newspaper’s Single Of The Week – opening for Public Enemy, featuring and producing on kindred musical spirit Tricky’s latest album, and starting what would eventually become Darker Than Blue. Widely respected label R&S Records recently signed Blue Daisy adding his ever-evolving talent to an already vital discography that includes James Blake, Aphex Twin, Lone and others.
Blue Daisy will be in concert at The Big Next Festival in Ghent on September the 12th!
