Brooklyn-bred neo-soul singer Adrian Daniel’s latest single, “This City,” is part love letter to the flawed yet beautifully adorned metropolis that is New York. According to Daniel, the Jake Dine and Ian Bakerman-produced track “tells the story of a love consumed by the city it was created in. It’s about still trying to find a way to still hold on to what is most precious to you, all while knowing its flawed. My theme is music for New York.”

Featuring a calm, reassuring introduction melting into a soulful serenade, it’s no wonder Adrian has been compared to the likes of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean.

Daniel has gained the support of publications ranging from Billboard, VIBE and Complex to The Fader and more. Listen to “This City” below.
