R&B experimentalist Jacques Greene has announced a new EP called After Life After Party with a new song and video for “1 4 ME.” It’s a stylish video for a slick song that plays off a trend I didn’t even know existed in which people ruin their new shoes in water and film it to put on Youtube. (That’s according to Fader anyway, who premiered the video.) Even without that context, it’s a very pretty video set in what looks like a hotel pool. Watch the video and read some words from Greene about what inspired the new EP below.
These tracks were born out of experimenting with a bit of self-imposed restraints. Afterlife was a particular sound palette I wanted to stick to and see what would come of it. ‘1 4 Me’ was trying to challenge myself to keep an arrangement dead simple. They came out of a period that was actually really prolific for me and I hope to share more soon, but these two stuck together with a playful spirit. Some fun for the end of summer, as we tread into winter.
