The newly-minted Grammy-nominated artist Daniel Caesar continues to wow his listeners post-release of the highly-rated debut Freudian. Now, the Toronto artist delivers a visual for the title track, which jumps from split screen scenarios (with or without women) to a somewhat bizarre boot camp this side of Kanye West‘s now-infamous “Workout Plan.”
Keavan Yazdani — who directed “Freudian” alongside Sean Brown — explains (source):
It’s an introspective look into why Daniel is the way he is, and the relationships in his life that are responsible for such… The second half of the video was inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. Danny instructing the drill line as the sergeant is him finally taking control of all the relationships he’s experienced. Leading, as opposed to being lead. At the end of the day, the reason the visual is so obscure, is so the viewer can interpret it as feels right to them. Subjective shit.
Check it all out above…if you’re late to the party, Caesar’s new album of the same name can also be stream in full below, via iTunes/Apple Music (or any other streaming network).
