Singer/songwriter Daniel Caesar has not only made waves in his hometown, the boy has grown into a man outside of the church. After the release of his debut EP last year, Caesar returns with Pilgrim’s Paradise, a seven-track EP that covers a wide range of Caesar’s thoughts and ideals.
The project’s first two singles, “Death & Taxes” and “Paradise” premiered exclusively on Beats 1 Radio and his cover of Kanye West’s “Streetlights” — titled “Streetcar” landed a little less than a week ago.
“Pilgrim’s Paradise picks up where I left off with my story on my last body of work,” Caesar said. “I found myself dissecting my life through my music; my relationships and my desires, my aspirations and my own self-worth.”
Deep and rather sprawling considering its length, Caesar touches on plenty of soulful influences while navigating through his personal journey on the project.
The EP can be streamed in full below via Soundcloud and is available on iTunes.
