Ade is a singer/songwriter and producer based in New York City. The artist cites eclectic references from Beck to Bjork to Weezer, with his own creations straddling just about everything in-between. This April he releases his debut album: Midnight Pizza. Written over the past 5 years, it finds Ade re-evaluating that familiar road that leads us all to so-called adulthood.
“I started singing about this kind of largely inconsequential coffee date I had been on earlier that day and improvised about half the lyrics in one go. It’s something of an outlier on the album but it was such a flow-y unfiltered account of my life at the time that I felt I had to include it. Plus I get a kick out of the idea of a four-on-the-floor club track about being tired of going out. Naturally, now I am sitting in my apartment writing this with a deep longing to be surrounded by obscenely loud music and sweaty strangers, but here’s to eventually (in my case, probably inevitably) being a homebody by choice again one day.”
Taking the shortest amount of time from conception to completion of all the tracks on his upcoming album, “Another Weekend” sets the scene for a debut record overflowing with ideas that dares to dream big: ‘Midnight Pizza’ (released 23 April, via Trickwork).
Composed, recorded, produced, and played/programmed in its entirety by Ade, additional orchestrations were contributed by CJ Camerieri (Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens) and Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers). Other instrumentalists to feature include Alex Sopp, Hideaki Aomori, Gabe Cabezas (yMusic) and Steve Marion (Delicate Steve). The album was co-mixed between Ade and Greg Tobler.
