JARED SALTIEL ANNOUNCES DREAM SONG EP, OUT ON MARCH 24
WATCH “A STRANGER, YOUR NAME” HERE
NYC RECORD RELEASE SHOW ON FRIDAY, MARCH 24 AT ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL
Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jared Saltiel can often be found working behind the scenes, channeling his talents as a string arranger, producer, and composer for the stage. A manic multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jon Brion, his original music taps into his gifts for orchestration and atmospherics, receiving comparisons to chamber pop icons Rufus Wainwright and Sufjan Stevens. With his acerbic wit and crafty narrative constructions, Saltiel is a compelling lyricist and an unapologetic perfectionist. Today he releases “A Stranger, Your Name” - the first taste of his new EP, Dream Song, out on March 24 via Adhyâropa Records. Watch the video for “A Stranger, Your Name” here.
Regarding its accompanying video: “A lot of my songs tell stories in the lyrics, so when it comes to music videos I often run into the same basic quandary of how to visualize the narrative without just literally depicting the plot of the song, line by line. Talking to Abner [music video director; lead singer of the band Eighty Ninety] about ‘A Stranger, Your Name,’ we felt like the ambiguity of the lyrics was a core element of the song, certainly not an accident, so we decided to embrace that rather than force the viewer into a particular interpretation. The guiding concept for the video was “wedding meets funeral,” a phrase that came to me in the shower, like many good ideas. That was the jumping-off point for a lot of the stark contrasts in the video, in color, movement, costume, etc. I guess the question was – how do we show that this is the happiest day in somebody’s life while also being the saddest day in somebody else’s? And moreover, how can we do that in a way where we’re not totally sure who’s who?”
Jared Saltiel will celebrate the release of Dream Song with a live performance on Friday, March 24 at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3. Tickets are available now.
