Aloe Blacc enhances the visual vibe of his latest hit single “The Man” by performing a live version at Red Bull Studio Los Angeles. In the one-take clip, directed by Kyle Salazar, the Soul singer-songwriter teams a chamber orchestra, led by Geoff “Double G” Gallegos (LA Philharmonic, DJ Quik) and an African dance troupe.
“With this version of the song, I want to remind people that music is made by human beings and instruments,” says Blacc. “At the root of it all are blood sweat and tears behind songs. Not just zeros and ones.”
“The Man” is taken from Blacc’s upcoming major label debut album, Lift Your Spirit, due out March 11th via XIX/Interscope.
