I love the way he connects with his fans. A new track ‘Zodiac’ plays in the background and it sounds damn neat.
Anyway, here’s Ryan Leslie explaining the video:
The 24-hour Apple Store on 57th street in NYC gets most of my business because I can stop in on my way home from the studio – usually in the wee hours of the morning. I really appreciate everyone who follows my updates, and I’m always looking for ways to cross the virtual/digital bridge and meet you in person. Here’s an example.
I’m grateful that I can communicate with you directly. Here I was: driving in Manhattan, listening to “Zodiac”, enjoying life, and inspired to pass on the good energy in some way. When I randomly posted the message that I’d be at the Apple Store in 15 minutes giving away signed iPods, I got a few @replies asking if I was joking or misleading everyone. This video shows I’m a man of my word! Listen closely and you’ll hear how the live instrument textures on “Zodiac” really sweetened the record. Stay tuned for more regarding the new album very shortly. Studio vid anyone?
