It’s simple Aloe Blacc is the man, and he’s not afraid to tell everybody. For the latest installment of “In The Red Bull Studio” the soulful crooner re-visualizes his hit single “The Man” with a special live performance music video, directed by Kyle Salazar, and shot in one take.
Blacc enlisted a 10-piece orchestra, led by Geoff “Double G” Gallegos (LA Philharmonic, DJ Quik) and an Ethiopian-inspired dance troupe for the visual.
“With this version of the song, I want to remind people that music is made by human beings and instruments,” says Blacc. “At the root of it all are blood sweat and tears behind songs. Not just zeros and ones.”
Aloe Blacc will release his major-label debut album Lift Your Spirit on March 11 via XIX Recordings/Interscope Records.
