Seattle rapper/producer Grieves recently shared his new video for “Faded”, a track off 5th studio album Running Wild recently released on Rhymesayers Entertainment.
The clip was Directed by TimSlew (Myke Bogan, The Last Artful, Dodgr) and shot in his hometown of Seattle, the video explores the story of two people who lost a relationship they once had – now living in polar opposite worlds to each other, but with obvious parallels between them. Grieves comments, “Losing touch is always hard. The further you grow, the harder it is to remember why all the space is between you.” Grieves has also announced a European tour kicking off February 1st, and he’s about to begin the 2nd leg of his 47-date US tour next week.
Running Wild is a 15-track collection recorded in Seattle and Stockholm alongside Swedish producer Chords (Jens Eric Resch Thomason). Featuring guest appearances from Fearce Vill, Romaro Franceswa, Paris Alexa, and Davey Jones, the album features elements one might expect to find on a classic soul record, such as rich guitar tones and humming organs, mixed with modern and experimental components.
