Watch the video to Kaytranada's new single featuring Anderson. Paak: "Glowed Up."
On May 6, producer Kaytranada will release his new album, 99.9%, and last month, he revealed the projects artwork and tracklisting, which showed an incredible range of features. Kaytranada has now released one of those eye-catching collabs, the Anderson. Paak-featuring "Glowed Up," and the new track, premiered today by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, arrives with an accompanying video.
The "Glowed Up" visual is a strange and heady blend of dreams and reality, as Kaytranada saunters around his house in slow-motion amid an aqueous party, and at other times, he's alone on an uncovered mattress, still floating with no clear intent. He watches video of Paak's performance through an old TV set, and at one point, the Cali funkman jumps out of of the screen to give Kaytranada a sandwich. There's a tinge of sadness to the video, as it implies that one has to tunnel one's vision in order to be "Glowed Up," but it's hard to imagine a more lovable jam.
The video arrives a day after the unveiling of Kaytranada's new cover story with the FADER, in which he discusses his struggle in accepting his own sexuality.
