New Video and Vinyl from Nadir

The Rock/Soul storyteller, Nadir, is back, this time with his first vinyl single! “Go It Alone” is a soulful, swinging slow burning banger that builds a bridge from blues to rock.

Nadir - Go It Alone & Love Thang 7 inch vinyl singleThe Drew Parfitt directed music video reveals Nadir as a man on a mission. His target is in sight, but his position has been compromised, and “The Man” is on his tail.

Meanwhile, “Love Thang” is a righteously funky b-side that gained an audience for itself in the single’s first week of release. The hot and heavy go-go groove was named Song of the Day on Funk Gumbo Radio, and is spinning in the UK at Radio Cardiff.

These tracks set the stage for Nadir’s forthcoming album The Book of Jonah, scheduled for an early summer release. In between, Nadir plans to kick out another vinyl single, a collaboration with Mayaeni, another soulful Detroit songwriter.

“We’re bringing heat on this record,” Nadir says, “The goal was to create something innovative and classic. The vinyl definitely helps take it there.”

New Blaxploitation: Nadir Records Strings for His Upcoming Album

Nadir’s upcoming album, The Book of Jonah is in the home stretch. In early January, Nadir recorded a string section in the Metroplex Room at Submerge for the track “A Hustler (In Spite of Myself)” as one of the final pieces of the puzzle.

An earlier version of this composition appeared in the score for the Detroit indie film Top Ten Things I Love/Hate About the Hood by CornerBoy Films, but Nadir is going straight “Superfly” on this updated version of the track.

“It’s blaxploitation chase music, so it had to have the real strings to feel right. This is the way I always heard this composition, so I’m thrilled with how it’s all coming together now,” Nadir says.

Michelle May, violinist and leader of Detroit world jazz combo Musique Noire, assembled a fine trio featuring Leah Celebi on viola, and Cecelia Sharpe on cello. John Celebi charted the string arrangement.

Special thanks to videographer Chariti Joi Ntuk, and video editor The War Time Journalist for pulling together the behind the scenes footage.
