The video, which premiered exclusively via COMPLEX, is the follow up to his debut single “Situation.” STEFAN explains the inspiration behind the visual, saying, “The video revolves around two addictions being intertwined by the temptations of pleasure.”
The EP also features two additional tracks, “God Damn” and “He’ll Never Know.” Beyond “Situation,” the singer’s mesmerizing falsetto creates a tryst between soul and alternative, and his emotive delivery and confessional lyricism bring honesty and heart to R&B.
21-year-old STEFAN JAMES’ music and lyrics pull from a life marred by tragic events, including battles with addiction and substance abuse, as well as the tragic loss of his older brother. Stefan turned to music to lead him on his road to recovery. Creating music enabled him to share this pain productively and poetically. “I’ve been there,” Stefan says, speaking to all who are dealing with depression, loss or addiction. “When you’re feeling down, just put a couple of my songs on and cry or smile. Whatever you have to do to get through that moment. You’re not alone.”
