The very talented and wonderfully creative Dan Black returns to music with ‘Hearts’ the brand new single taken from his upcoming, presumably titled new album, Do Not Revenge due out later this year. The record follows his 2009 debut ((un)), which spawned the hit singles ‘Symphonies’ and ‘U + Me.’
The catchy and symphonic electro-pop ‘Hearts’ features none other than the incomparable, Kelis! Dan Black recently revealed to ELLE Magazine that the track was originally produced for Kelis’ upcoming album, FOOD.
Well, we were already working on songs for her album. After I wrote one of the songs [Hearts], I thought, this is so where I want to be going with my solo stuff. I just loved it. So, nervously, I asked her if I could use it, presuming she’d say no. But, magically, she said yes! I am a huge fan of hers.
The cool and creative accompanying video for ‘Hearts’ was shot over 24 hours on a rooftop in Paris. Kelis makes a cameo via moving posters and photographs. Co-staring in the video are also Dan Black’s furry friends (Plush Monkey and Rabbit) whom we actually met during Black’s last performance at Le Baron Chinatown in New York City back in 2012 (here).
This is yet another highly anticipated record we can’t wait to hear this year! Check it out!
