Daniel Caesar Drops Off Introspective Video For “Freudian”
Fresh off his two Grammy nominations today for his debut album Freudian, fast-rising 22-year-old singer/songwriter Daniel Caesar decides to come through this evening and share the official video for its title track.
Directed by Keaven Yazdani & Sean Brown, the video opens with a split screen with the left side displaying Daniel in what appears to be agony, with dim lighting and on the verge of self-destruction. Meanwhile, the right side is the opposite and finds Daniel looking content surrounded by a beautiful woman.
"It's an introspective look into why Daniel is the way he is, and the relationships in his life that are responsible for such," director Keavan Yazdani said. "The second half of the video was inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. Danny instructing the drill line as the sergeant is him finally taking control of all the relationships he’s experienced. Leading, as opposed to being lead."
Yazdani continued: "At the end of the day, the reason the visual is so obscure, is so the viewer can interpret it as feels right to them. Subjective shit.”
