Ady Suleiman refuses to let ideas disappear.
Continually recording his thoughts as voice memos, he's able to build vast boards of inspirations, passing thoughts, and potential plans.
Surging ahead, the songwriter's latest project is a mixtape, with new release 'Thoughts & Moments' set to land on April 5th.
Recorded in Stockholm, it's a broad, mature, highly creative document, one that stretches Ady to the limit.
“‘Thoughts & Moments’ started because I didn't want to go straight into a full album, I wanted a bit of time to be more creative and more experimental. I wanted to make a project that was a bit more free. We moved from acoustic to electric, the guys put their flavours on and took it to a better space. I liked putting down the first things I thought of, and those usually became the song. I love the vibes and interludes, that's how I started thinking of this project, a vibes projects. I wanted to do something that was really free and ‘Thoughts & Moments Vol 1' is the result.”
New single 'Strange Roses' is online now, a powerful collaboration with the producer GRADES that features one of Ady Suleiman's most emotive vocals yet.
Ahead of the mixtape we've obtained this new video, featuring behind the scenes footage and some thoughts on the creative process from Ady himself.
