It's hard to believe last time we talked to Austin Paul we were premiering his Desperia EP. Now he's already prepping the release of Revival, the third installment of his EP trilogy. In the last four months Paul has not only been writing, performing, and recording new music, but today he brings us the video for Revival's lead single "Lady," which he also directed.
While we remain that his voice does carry that accessible R&B vibe of a John Legend or Miguel, the "Lady" video shows the artist in a more theatrical light. This visual definitely finds Paul more in the edgy corner of the party with artists like Bowie and Prince. This collaboration between the singer and the video's editor, Forbes, shows the next generation of artists taking charge of their visual aesthetic, not leaving it to the executives.
