American singer Gus Dapperton has dropped the visual for his new single, Post Humorous.
Directed by Dapperton’s longtime collaborator Matthew Dillon Cohen, production on Post Humorous was delated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Four months after the initial shoot schedule, production resumed at Brooklyn’s The Sultan Room. In the clip, Dapperton takes on the role of a struggling young comic who finds himself in hot water.
The track, which is blazing its way up the US Alternative radio charts, will feature on Dapperton’s sophomore record, Orca. The 10 track album, due out next month, was written produced by Dapperton and also includes the previously released tracks First Aid and Medicine. Orca was mixed by Spike Stent (Frank Ocean, Lady Gaga, Beyonce).
Orca is set to conceptually explore pain and suffering, with a focus on healing and redemption. Dapperton began working on his sophomore album whilst touring throughout 2018 on the back of his debut record, Where Polly People Go to Read. The adrenaline of performing live paired with the hardships of life on the road took its toll on the singer. “My lifestyle and habits had gotten extreme. I wasn’t getting eight hours of sleep a night, I was drinking and doing drugs often. Wasn’t eating healthy. And on top of it, I was performing. A show can be the most inspirational, emotional high; but if something goes wrong it can be devastating.” Dapperton said.
