Daniel Merriweather releases the incredible video for brand new track ‘RAIN’. The track is now available across all DSPs here. A rescheduled live date has also been announced at London’s Omeara for Tuesday 6th October, original tickets still valid and available here.
After the release of initial track ‘Paradise’ (produced by Kwes) in February, ‘Rain’ was self-produced by Daniel and features additional production and arrangement from award winning jazz pianist and producer Barney McAll, diving even further into Daniel’s love for a soulful sound and channelling a gospel-like melody to bring in even more heart to the piece. The accompanying video, featuring the incredible dance and choreography of Theophillus ‘Godson’ Oloyade was directed by Angelo Dominic Sesto (Diplo, Octavian) and George Roberts Bascombe and premiered via Billboard.
On the thinking behind the track, Daniel explains; “‘Rain’ is about a restart, it’s about new beginnings. It’s about the collapse of broken systems and the celebration of a new chapter.”
The newly rescheduled show at Omeara in London is on sale now and comes after a residency in November last year at Laylow in Maida Vale, London. Tickets are on sale here.
Alongside releasing his platinum selling, critically acclaimed debut album ‘Love & War’, which reached number 2 in the UK Charts, Daniel is a busy collaborator and has worked with some of the biggest names in pop.
