“Blue Butterfly” introduces Danny Zee, a vulnerable lyricist, and hypnotic composer. Inspired by artists such as Daniel Caesar, Frank Ocean, and John Mayer, Danny follows the flow of Neo-Soul music, with a slow tempo beat and dreamy vocals that overlay the instrumental.
Danny Zee has now embarked on a new artistic path after making a name for himself in his native Pakistan. His new single “Blue Butterfly” dropped October 25th and brought his seductive blend of R&B and soul to life.
Danny Zee gets real about the meaning behind “Blue Butterfly” and its place in his previous relationship, “‘Blue butterfly’ was an emoji-symbol of love in my last relationship. We would always say to each other, ‘you’re my blue butterfly’, which is why I included it as the exact lyric in the song. But as a butterfly is meant to fly out of its cocoon, so did we. And we are no more together, and hence, the longing and yearning for her gave birth to this track.”
The yearning is truly felt through his sweet and mesmerizing vocals. Instrumentally, the intoxicating guitar carries the flow of the track throughout its highs and lows. It’s in that instrument that we can fully grasp the influences of Neo-Soul.
The single is the first off Danny Zee’s upcoming album of the same name. Comprised of 8 original tracks, written over a 6-month period, the entirety of the album was written, composed, and produced by Danny in complete isolation and lockdown. The journey of the record was to document his progression from the dark to the light. Each track immortalizes a moment on this path that has led Danny Zee to reach his full artistic expressions, such as heartbreak, abandonment, solitude, and acceptance.
Today, Danny Zee is looking to move forward as an artist and pursue music that feels more authentic to him. With his new single “Blue Butterfly”, Danny introduces himself to the US audiences as a vulnerable songwriter and new R&B artist.
