Out now, stream DVSN's new album "Morning After."
OVO SZN is upon us. Back in August, the OVO Sound label made quite the announcement when they started putting up billboards around Toronto's Eaton Center to reveal upcoming albums from Majid Jordan, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Roy Wood$, and DVSN. While PartyNextDoor already dropped off his Seven Days EP last week, and Majid Jordan are readying The Space Between for October 27th, next up from Drake’s talented roster is R&B duo DVSN, who releases their highly anticipated sophomore album today called Morning After.
Laced with 13 tracks in total, the follow up to last year’s debut album Sept. 5th features vocals from singer Daniel Daley, while production is handled entirely by OVO producer & fellow dvsn member Nineteen85.
“On our last album, Sept. 5th, we gave you a tiny glimpse into our world, but that was much darker. It was literally a door that looked like: "enter at your own risk." This time around, our world has gotten a little bigger, brighter, but the element of dangerous still exists.” DVSN said.
First announced in August with the rollout of a movie poster, the album was visually shaped & inspired by foreign films. While it’s not necessarily described as a “visual album,” DVSN did say the album will “definitely feel like you've just watched a movie with your ears.” The OVO duo also said that they knew the art direction before the album was completed, which allowed them to tailor the music to complement the visuals.
“The idea behind most of the visuals on this album came from watching foreign films. In North America, we're exposed to so many big-budget film and TV productions that we can really appreciate the raw aspect of so many films from around the world. To be specific, Asian, European, and Latin film all had three key things that stood out to us, that made them feel different from North American movies and TV: subtitles, color, and location.
Available on iTunes, fans can now stream the dark & moody album in its entirety via Apple Music. Hit play and let us know what you think!
