Norwegian producer Lido has amassed an eclectic following as a result of his boundary pushing sounds ranging from an R&B project alongside Santell titled The Passion Project, to his hip-hop influenced efforts on Chance The Rapper's "Angels". He also recently gained praise for an epic 8 minute remix of Kanye's The Life of Pablo called "The Life of Peder", which further showcased his versatility.
Lido now announces a forthcoming, still untitled album with a brand new song and music video. Serving as the first single off the project, "Crazy" also marks Lido's directorial debut. Showing Lido conduct a symphony of lights; the video is unlike anything we've seen before and according to Lido, was created because, "I write with a very 'classical music' mentality even though it’s in an electronic landscape and i thought this was a cool way of symbolizing that." Visuals aside, the song itself is an impressive tune that sees Lido himself singing over the song's horn section and driving synth layers. Is there anything this guy can't do?
Watch the mesmerizing new visuals below and stay tuned for more information about the forthcoming project!
