Video: Raphael Saadiq – “Day Dreams”


This new Raphael Saadiq video for “Day Dreams” off of his latest release, Stone Rollin’, is just cute. Featuring actor Danny Pudi from NBC’s “Community,” the video shows a broke but overzealous lover going on a shopping spree he can’t quite afford. What’s funny is that Pudi’s character really doesn’t seem to have a single care about his bad checks and debt building, and continues to carry along every so merrily.

Raphael Saadiq’s Stone Rollin’ Out Now + MP3

Stone Rollin’ – written and produced by Raphael Saadiq, who also plays bass, mellotron, keys, guitar, percussion and even drums on most of the tracks – is even more powerful, urgent and bold than The Way I See It (2008). The new songs are firmly planted in classic R&B, and nod to Saadiq’s heroes like Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Little Walter and Sly Stone, with his own contemporary spin.

Stone Rollin
‘ features its share of special guests too. Robert Randolph dropped by to lay down some nasty steel guitar on “Day Dreams.” Guesting on “Just Don’t” is Larry Dunn from Earth, Wind, and Fire, plus one of Saadiq’s indie rock favorites, Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon. Another standout track is “Good Man,” which brilliantly blends golden age soul with a killer hip hop hook, co-written and sung by upstart Taura Stinson. The new album is in stores today – get yours now!
