Clocking in at three minutes, “All About You” is a sweet yet sensual cut inspired by ’90s R&B. Bridges and Daye recorded the song during a chance studio encounter in Los Angeles, and is produced by Bridges’ longtime collaborator, Ricky Reed.
“For this song, we set out to bring back the energy of some of the 90’s R&B greats we grew up listening to,” Bridges said in a statement. “The way Lucky and I met was completely organic. One night when I was out on the town in LA I ran into a friend of Lucky’s who suggested that we should collaborate. I was totally down but wanted our connection to be natural and chill. The day after, I was in the studio and Lucky randomly shows up. I grabbed my guitar and we tossed around some melodies and lyrics and “All About You” was born.”
Reed added, “It was the last day of our session. We weren’t even trying to write anything, just finish up a tune. Then we got word Lucky was pulling up. When they first met in the studio kitchenette Leon was already holding a guitar, playing the chords. Lucky started singing, we dragged a mic over by the sink and started capturing. I fired up the drum machine. Song was done about 2 hours later. Never seen anything like it from two strangers, now friends.”
“All About You” also arrives with an accompanying music video directed by LAMAR+NIK. The track was brought to life using a stop-motion technique called Stratastencil, and involved 4,500 video frames being printed, hand-cut and photographed frame-by-frame to create the visual’s stunning tunnel effect.
