The Lido hype is real as we await the release of his debut album Everything on October 7. From his epic Coachella performance with Jaden Smith to the release of his first single, “Crazy,” everything done in promotion of the album has only helped to increase hype for the the release.
Today, he dropped the second single to the album, “Murder,” an almost Trippy Turtle-esque bouncy tune, full of emotion and story. Lido has said that there’s a story to the album from beginning to finish, and “Murder” represents the initial breakup and the chaos therein.
“The vocal is chopped to sound nervous and stuttering before the words finally come out in the second verse, followed by an emotional chaos of a “drop” when the breakup has happened and then the sad anti-climax of silence portrayed by a 80-piece orchestra we recorded in Norway.”
The visual accompanying the track is equally as chaotic and beautiful, as with basically anything Lido does. Check it out below, and read more about the themes behind Everything in his exclusive interview with Complex here.
