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.
