Alex Bent + The Emptiness release single “Vanilla Blue”

ALEX BENT: I’ve just released “Vanilla Blue” – my first single/video this year with many more to come leading up to my LP release.

 

 
I decided on the title “Vanilla Blue” several months before I started writing the song. It originally came to me as a description of my appearance, but after running the name by several friends I realized that those two words could be interpreted in many different ways. One friend interpreted the title to mean “a sweet kind of sadness” and it stuck with me. I started working on the song shortly thereafter and wrote it with that meaning in mind.
 
You can read more about the video at HipHopCanada.
 
Riley Deacon, who helped produce the song, also directed the video. It’s new territory for me as I’ve stepped away slightly from the dark piano pop of my earlier releases.
