PREMIERE: Leo Napier Releases New Lyric Video For “Before I Go Away”

After his recent premiere, Leo Napier is teaming up with VENTS for the exclusive first look at the lyric video that follow the uberly catchy, soulful single “Before I Go Away”. Just as the song, the video has this street-like vibe that fits so well the track.

Before I Go Away is the debut single from Coachella performing, neo-soul talent Leo Napier. Born in the US but now a proud London Ladbroke Grove resident, you’ll recognise the versatile songwriter’s crisp vocals as featuring alongside Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon on Gramatik’s most successful single to date, Native Son. Chart topping dance act GRiZ’s electro-funk take on Before I Go Away was released by the DJ last year and has garnered millions of streams to date. This follows from their previous collaboration A Fine Way To Die  which also has streams in the millions.

‘Before I Go Away’ is the first instalment from Leo’s debut EP ‘Mind Up’ (out Autumn 2017) which will slowly unravel itself throughout the course of the year.  The EP is a collection of urban tales, a mix of classic funk/soul with hard hitting electronic rhythms produced by eclectic worldwide talents. The songs are gritty urban tales with a cast of colourful characters peppered with Leo’s signature brand of dark humour.

“I never planned to stick the 5 tunes together and call it an EP. But somehow these songs feel cohesive. It’s a controlled chaos. A web of funky anecdotes served up, not exactly on a silver platter, but more of a greasy plate, with a whole lot of hot sauce.”  Leo Napier
