Prophet, a multi-instrumentalist and cult 80s funk musician, just released his first album in thirty years May 11th via Stones Throw Records, Wanna Be Your Man. Today he releases the title track’s official music video (premiered via Vibe), watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUtV8TMGW6s
Directed by label mate and avant-garde R&B singer and violinist, Sudan Archives, as well as LA-based filmmaker Ross Harris, the video perfectly sums up Prophet’s laid-back, retro-tinged vibe. Says Prophet on the making of the video and the track,
“It was beautiful working with Sudan. I think she is a beautiful and talented artist and she has good ideas. I would love to work with her again. ‘Wanna Be Your Man’ is about me being all the ladies man, in an emotional way. And it’s not about any of my specific past relationships, quite the contrary– it’s about relationships I don’t have and that’s why I wanna be your man.”
This summer Prophet has confirmed a performance at The Growlers’ annual Beach Goth Festival on August 5th and a set at ‘Stones Throw Soul’ this Saturday June 23rd, a special hometown showcase featuring seven of the label’s artists.
