Oberhofer has teamed up with King Princess for a new track, ‘Dreaming Of U’.
The song is the final preview of new album ‘Smothered’, which is set to arrive this Friday, 12th November.
‘Dreaming Of U’ is the fourth track to come from the album, following up on ‘Let It Go’, ‘What Does It Mean To Me?’ and ‘SUNShiiNE’, the latter of which features The Strokes’ Nick Valensi and Shamir.
Brad Oberhofer explains: “It’s about a time I was dreaming about a person, only to later find out they had been dreaming about me at the same time. With the “Dreaming Of U” video, we tried to capture the experience of interacting with someone in a realistic dreamscape: an empty void. I also had fun practicing the keyboard solo while pretending to be asleep. We spent a lot of time playing with lighting to evoke the kind of ethereally-haloed silhouettes that appear in my dreams. Collaborating with director Quincy Banks was the right fit because I’ve always admired his sense of space and his taste in 70’s and 80’s aesthetics.”
