Adeline has announced her self-titled debut solo album due out November 9 and shared lead single “Before” via Rolling Stone today. Transporting listeners to another time and place, “Before” lays the groundwork for a dancefloor epic with an irresistibly funky bass line and draws you in with Adeline’s warm, powerful secret-weapon vocals.
Adeline is the French-Caribbean tour-de-force widely known as the indomitable voice and face of the lauded Nu-Disco band Escort. She has already made waves with her solo project this summer, garnering praise from VOGUE, FADER, Refinery29, She Shreds, Rolling Stone and many more with the release of early singles “Emeralds” and “Swirl” as well as her stunning Afropunk performance.
With musical influences essential to any history lesson in funk, R&B and disco, her upcoming solo debut collection – which she co-produced with Morgan Wiley (Hercules & Love Affair, Midnight Magic), wrote & played bass on – gives nods to Chaka Khan, Prince, Curtis Mayfield & Sylvester while still remaining contemporary. As the front woman of Escort, Adeline has previously taken center stage at major festivals including Coachella, Montreal Jazz Fest and Full Moon Festival. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!
