Whether you’ve come to know Daniel Caesar through his collaborations or his solo efforts, it’s pretty obvious that the talented young Canadian is well on his way to becoming an established artist. After generating buzz with his previous EP’s Praise Break and Pilgrim’s Paradise, he found breakthrough success last year with the Kali Uchis-featuring slow burner “Get You.” Now, as the JUNO-nominated singer/songwriter preps the release of his full-length debut Freudian, he’s dropped a dual video for his current singles “We Find Love” and “Blessed.”
Adopting a “home movie” aesthetic, principal director Keavan Yazdani creates an intimate feel throughout the short film. Though the tracks have contrasting themes of losing love vs. finding love, the transition between the two is seamless. Daniel and his leading ladies have us all caught up in our feelings as we watch the separate relationship dynamics play out on screen. The grainy visuals lend an extra measure of authenticity to Daniel’s emotive vocals.
Watch the tenderhearted clip for “We Find Love”/”Blessed,” then keep scrolling to hear each song in its entirety. Afterward, head to iTunes, where you can pre-order Freudian ahead of its August 25th release and receive instant downloads of “We Find Love,” “Blessed” and “Get You.” In addition to Kali Uchis, expect cameos from H.E.R. and Syd.
