HANNI EL KHATIB
Shares new single & video "DUMB" taken from album 'FLIGHT'
due May 15th via Innovative Leisure
Hanni El Khatib shares a new single from his upcoming fifth full-length, FLIGHT out May 15th via Innovative Leisure. "DUMB" finds Hanni striking a midpoint between doo-wop and a post-modern Ennio Morricone Spaghetti Western score.
The track is the third single to be released from FLIGHT, following "ALIVE" and "STRESSY," and arrives after his Blogothèque Stay Away Show last Friday where he played a mix of old and new tracks.
FLIGHT is the most complete embodiment of who Hanni El Khatib is as an artist. Produced by Leon Michels (El Michels Affair, Travis Scott, Mark Ronson, Lana Del Rey), the album is a record both dense and intricate yet direct and spontaneous.
It is garage rock, it is hip-hop, it is soul, it is blues, it is psychedelic, but more than anything, FLIGHT is a brilliant Hanni El Khatib record that taps into the adolescent spirit of creation that first stirred him to make songs in the first place.
FLIGHT follows 2017's Savage Times and his releases with Frank Leone ("Solid Gold" and "Crown"), his song with LA disco-not-disco duo De Lux ("Power Struggle), two songs with first-generation Mexican-American singer/songwriter Rudy De Anda ("Plastered Beach" and
"Jealous Guy"), and LA duo Pinky Pinky's raw and exhilarating debut album Turkey Dinner, which El Khatib co-produced.
