Wonky-pop musician and producer Dan Black has partnered with Popcrush, who called the track “a surprisingly joyful humanist dance floor anthem,” to release the music video for “Farewell Ft. Kelis.” The fourth of twelve “experiences,” the track inches listeners closer to the release of Do Not Revenge, his first official full length since the 2009 release of ((un)).
Do Not Revengewill be released officially July 6th, 2017. In what he calls “12 Songs, 12 Experiences,” Black will provide listeners with the opportunity to be submerged in the songs on the album through a number of creatively distinct experiences. The previous three of the twelve experiences, “Headphones,” “Blow ft. Fans” and “So” have already launched on Black’s cryptic webpage, where seconds have begun counting down progressively to the moment when each allotted block fills with a cut from the new album. With eight reveals remaining, between now and the time that the final experience, “
We Drift On ft. Imogen Heap” launches in July, listeners will be able to discover tracks from the album through different digital Do Not Revenge related events, such as: a 24 hour live streaming performance, a 100 cameras film experience, a playable video game, straight-up music videos + more.
I tried to think of the album as this complete thing” Black says. “For me it is important to write that way. If I get too focused on one song, I can get sucked into a need for perfection. Thinking bigger is more freeing – maybe in all things actually – not just music.”
