DVSN releases a stunning album trailer for "Morning After."
Earlier this month, the entire OVO label made a surprise announcement, putting up billboards at Toronto's Eaton Center to reveal upcoming albums from Majid Jordan, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Roy Wood$ and DVSN. Unfortunately, none of the projects came with a concrete release date, with the label opting instead for a more general "fall 2017" window. However, DVSN has been increasingly active on social media, and last week the duo shared the film-poster inspired album artwork to their Morning After project. With sun-drenched imagery that wouldn't look out of place at the Cannes Film Festival, the credits include the supporting cast of Noah "40" Shebib, Aubrey "Drake" Graham, Olever El Khatib, Paul "Nineteen85" Jeffries, and Daniel Daly (the latter two make up DVSN).
Now, DVSN have revealed an accompanying album trailer, building off the foundation set by the artwork. It's hard to determine exactly how thematically relevant visual components will ultimately be, but if it's any indication, DVSN's latest may touch on themes of youth, lost innocence, romance, and rebellion. One things for sure - the cinematography is on point, and it seems that the label spared no expense on that front. The composition of the opening shot (which also makes up the album cover) is something you might see in a straight up arthouse film.
Stunning shots unfold while a piano led ballad plays in the background, with DVSN's vocals front and center. The untitled song has yet to drop, but it sounds like a promising and powerful track, especially once the arrangement widens to include anthemic percussion and distorted synth flares. It does beg the question of whether Morning After will be a visual album, as so many recent drops have been. It certainly appears as if there will at the very least be a cinematic component. We can only hope. Check out the trailer below, and stay tuned for more news on DVSN.
