Aloe Blacc Performs “The Man” Live at The Red Bull Studio (Video)
Acclaimed pop-soul singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc stepped into Red Bull Studio Los Angeles last week for a special live performance of his new hit single “The Man” from his upcoming major label debut album Lift Your Spirit (XIX/Interscope Records).
The song was recorded for the latest installment of “In The Red Bull Studio” a music video series featuring influential and emerging artists performing songs from upcoming releases. For this performance, Blacc enlisted a chamber orchestra, led by Geoff “Double G” Gallegos (LA Philharmonic, DJ Quik) and an African dance troupe. The music video was directed by Kyle Salazar and shot in one uninterrupted take.
With this version of the song, I want to remind people that music is made by human beings and instruments,” says Blacc.“ At the root of it all are blood sweat and tears behind songs. Not just zeros and ones.”
