“Symphonies” (Video)

    Apparently this track was originally supposed to be a cover of Notorious BIG’s “Hypnotize,” but it is clearly not that anymore. Instead, Dan Black’s “Symphonies” is a pretty straightforward pop track that unabashedly jacks the percussion from Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” with a video that stylistically borrows from the opening credit sequences of a number of different films.


    If you’re in the UK the “Symphonies” single is out June 29 on Polydor, and Dan Black’s album, ((un)) is out July 6.
