Alternative soul singer Adrian Daniel meshes sonics with storytelling for the vibe-y Disillusions album, premiering exclusively on Billboard.

The Brooklyn-bred wunderkind started as a professional dancer gracing stages like the Apollo Theater and the Brooklyn Academy of Music before starting a band called L.D.C. and pouring his passion into singing and songwriting. Now, he's made a name for himself with previous projects like 2012's eclectic sound trip Memoirs of a Stoner and the seductive 2014 EP Fkkking High.

The 15-track offering fuses funky grooves with smooth vocals (standouts include "Pride," "Stone Cold Case" and the previously released "Fkkking High") as well as tinges of his diverse influences a la Kanye West, Bob Dylan, Jay Z and Coldplay. It also includes collaborations with singer/musician Jordan Bratton and frequent collaborator LO.

Jam out to Disillusions, which lands April 1, below.
