Fresh from releasing his brand new single ‘Black Heart’ featuring The Dap Kings last week, rising UK
artist Stealth has now delivered the
music video for his latest track.
Set in The
Dap Kings’ acclaimed recording studio in Brooklyn, New York, the black and
white visual takes a behind the scenes look at Stealth and the renowned funk and soul band performing ‘Black Heart’.
The UK singer/songwriter says, “I had the pleasure recording this with The Dap Kings over in NYC and it was a
dream come true. I’ve always been a huge fan of Charles Bradley and Sharon
Jones who they recorded and played with, so to have the opportunity to meet
and record with these living legends was unbelievable.”
Stealth’s new single
showcases his rich jazz-inspired instrumental sound and silky vocal range, with
the track paying homage to the anticipation that precedes a break-up. ‘’Black
Heart’ is about people saying one thing, but their Black Heart says another.” says Stealth.
Influenced by blues and soul legends such as Etta James and Howlin Wolf, Stealth
propelled into the spotlight with his debut EP, ‘Intro’, whichpeaked
at #2 in the UK iTunes singer/songwriter chart and #3 in the US. His single off
the EP ‘Judgement Day’, premiered on
an episode of hit TV series ‘Suits’ and later clocked up almost 7.5 million plays on YouTube and almost 4 million Spotify streams to
date. Off the back of the release of ‘Intro’, the UK singer/songwriter
received strong support across the BBC
from Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music and BBC Introducing.
A slick embodiment of the rising talent’s wistful sound, ‘Black Heart’ marks the beginning of an exciting chapter in Stealth’s career, with the UK artist also set to release his brand-new EP later this year.
