Ade has just shared the first proper single from his forthcoming debut album Midnight Pizza, which drops on April 23rd. “Havin’ Fun With Pharoah” was sourced from, almost entirely composed, recorded, produced, and played/programmed by the DIY artist himself, Ade. Let’s hope more singles are coming soon!
“‘Havin’ Fun with Pharaoh’ was an instrumental track that had been kicking around for a while, Ade explains. “When it finally came time to figure out what I might want to say over it, I was going through my voice notes in search of some inspo (as one does) and ended up all the way back at the original recording of myself sitting at the piano and playing the main riff for the first time some years ago, featuring some of my friends’ voices in the background. One thing led to another and I found myself listening to a year of my and my friends’ voices, wrapped in this iQuilt patched with vibrant, goofy voice note memories. I found it only fitting to make the song a tribute to the time that piano part was conceived, the voices in those little recordings, and the friends they belong to.”
