Ed. Encourages Self-Expression On Debut Single, "Live Yours"

Alternative R&B music artist Ed. drops futuristic visual for his debut single, “Live Yours”.

Hailing from Miami, Florida – currently residing between London and LA – and melding alternative-R&B with a range of experimental inflections to bring a captivating and hypnotic new sound, the exciting new singer-songwriter Ed. released his debut single “Live Yours” (out now on Prmise Land) at the end of 2023.

After amassing an impressive 300,000 streams in just a matter of weeks, today he releases the single’s must-see, cinematic visual.

The futuristic clip sees Ed. as a being who was born in space and has never been to earth before, knowing only what his ancestors have told him about it.

With all life on earth now extinct, he has an opportunity to visit, although he is not certain it is habitable.

Landing in London during the autumn, he is stunned by its beauty so rather than being down that he is there alone, he is full of gratitude and in the very spirit of the song, he embraces everything he is able to experience.

The video was directed by JQ and Andrey Krauzov with creative direction & story by Ed.

Produced by Darkchild protégé Jack Lawson (SZA, Alex Vaugh, Blxst, Ty Dolla $ign) and mixed by industry veteran Denis Koziak (Khalid, Majid Jordan, Lil Durk), “Live Yours” brings together an off-kilter R&B sound with cadences of psychedelic sonics and undertones of high-energy Hip-Hop to deliver bold, cutting-edge melodies underpinned by strong social messages around living your life as fully and authentically as possible.

The song is the first single from his forthcoming debut EP which is set to be released this year.

According to Ed., “art is an expression of identity, freedom of mind and truth to your own definition of creation.”

Speaking on the message he hopes to convey through his music, he adds “I believe it is important to always stay present, show up as your best self and strive daily to become more aligned with the cosmic beings we all truly are. My music is a message to stray away from other people’s perspectives, find yourself daily, be open to change and always stay mindful in the moments that make up your journey.”

Drawing on eclectic musical influences ranging from acts such as Tame Impala to Travis Scott and with a must-see visual for “Live Yours” dropping imminently and more new music planned for next year, alongside a host of creative endeavors across music, fashion, and mindfulness, Ed. Is set to firmly make his mark with his debut single throughout this year and far beyond as he invites you to join him on his unique, cosmic journey.
