Daniel Caesar Puts The Game On Notice With Video For “We Find Love/Blessed”
All signs are pointing that “Get You” singer-songwriter, Daniel Caesar, will have a breakout year.
It’s no secret that we love Daniel Caesar here at Okayplayer. Well, at least I do. The Toronto-based singer-songwriter has captivated ears with his connection-inducing music. From “Japanese Denim” to “Get You” featuring Kali Uchis, Daniel has enriched our earholes with a deeply profound R&B/Soul sensibility and affects us with every note. It is his voice, songwriting and presence for the video for “We Find Love/Blessed” that takes us over the edge and unlocks Daniel Caesar’s world for all to see.
Directed by Keavan Yazdani, Sean Brown and Daniel Palmer — “We Find Love/Blessed” is a stylish, grainy, home movie-inspired video that conveys love, loss, desire and determination from the mind and heart of Daniel Caesar. This latest release helps to imbue his debut album release for Freudian with much anticipation. Daniel Caesar’s writing and melodies are so good on this track that you’ll be playing it on repeat just to keep your heart smiling.
“This is the proudest I’ve been of anything I’ve created. ‘Freudian,’ as a body of work, is about examining my most complex feelings and thoughts as directly as possible,” Daniel told Fader last Friday. “I’m more exposed than ever on this album. It’s like I’m in therapy, but it’s on display. And I got to make this with my friends. It’s just us, no label, so it makes it that much more special.”
With online pre-orders for Freudian available now, all should be circling the date of Aug. 25 when the project is live and in living color. Watch “We Find Love/Blessed” below and keep your lighters in the air for the bruv, Daniel Caesar.
