Anthony Valadez today has released a teaser for his upcoming album Fade Away. The teaser, titled Prelude to the Fade features two songs from the forthcoming album and remixes. Fade Away will be released in November via Plug Research (pre-order).
“This whole project just kind of came together very organically over the past 2 years.
The bulk of the production was recorded while dealing with family loss and I kind of think
that’s why I went full throttle with the strings on the forthcoming album Fade Away. I wanted this album to strike a chord with people’s emotions. We live in a technological
age where anyone can post songs on soundcloud or release material which is awesome!
But I just wanted to create something that resonated or connected with listeners.”
“Every single collaborator on this album is someone I am a fan of. From the string arrangements
of Nick Rosen to the rhymes of ADAD, the vocal delivery of Alex Isley to Maylee Todd, it still
blows my mind that these folks were on board to build something with me. This is definitely a
closed chapter and soundtrack for this period in my life.”
“The remixers on the Prelude to the Fade EP are friends who’s music sensibility I trust. King Most has long knocked out re-edits on Soundcloud for years and that I have played on my KCRW show. It was a no brainer to get him involved. NFINIT has been behind the scenes wight he likes of Meshell Ndegeocello, Thundercat and many others and Ive always wanted to work with them so this became the magic opportunity! Being that the album cuts are more melodic and mellow I wanted to contrast it as an EP with explores directions that seemed foreign to me. There’s no greater feeling then hearing what someone has flipped and created as their own.”
