Adrian Daniel is a man possessed in his latest visual offering “Fool.” Directed by J-EMZ, Adrian’s dark tale involves a woman, whose spirit takes over his soul. “It’s about loving someone to the point where you lose what matters to you,” he explains of the LO-produced single.
If this is your first time meeting Adrian, the Brooklyn-bred singer recently released his Fkkking High EP, a trippy sound trip reminiscent of Frank Ocean meets The Weeknd meets Childish Gambino (“Perfectly Numb” and “Fkkking High” are personal favorites). Despite the project’s title and his band/production team dubbed The Stoners, AD works sober. “I’m a story kind of guy,” he says. “I look at songs like pictures you can hear. It’s more about a feeling.”
Listening to Prince from the womb, Adrian began belting notes at 6 years old and penning silly songs about ice cream and candy. These days, the former dancer is scribing his life experiences into his yet-to-be-titled album due later this year. Get lost in “Fool” above and his EP below. The track, released through Tommy Boy Records, will also be available for purchase on iTunes on Nov. 11.
