Stream Lido’s emotive R&B-inspired five-track EP ‘I O U 1’Lido I O U 1

Lido releases his I O U 1 EP off Emmanuel de Buretel’s Because Music label. The Norwegian singer/songwriter and producer takes listeners on an R&B-tinged journey of emotion made from innovative electronic brushstrokes. Refined soul weighs heavy in each of the five tracks on the project, combining complex rhythms and murky ambiance with well-rounded vocal variety.

Lido teased the EP with a cryptic Instagram post back in July. He then spaced out three single releases from the EP: “3 Million,” “Corner Love” featuring Unge Ferrari, and “Outstanding.” Beyond the project’s leading singles, “Partake” is a new drop that stands out among the list of must-listens, as a melancholy Lido slows heartbeats and laments over distraught emotions. The song takes a turn halfway through, touting a story of resilience by its conclusion. Lido’s latest comes after a handful of productions for Chance The Rapper earlier this summer, and he will be will be supporting ZHU at Red Rocks Amphitheater in October.

Lido has followed up his latest single “3 Million” with a spacious R&B slow burner called “Corner Love,” featuring fellow Norwegian Unge Ferrari. Like past songs by the multi-instrumentalist and producer, the track is a journey with multiple movements, beginning his own smoldering vocals that bring listeners into a mental lounge space. A bed of violins arrives out of nowhere for Ferrari to land for a raspy, auto-tuned verse. Lido returns for a soothing chorus before the strings explode into chaos, with a frantic vocal sample shouting above the fray.

The frenzy dies down for a final chapter with just Lido and a piano, which complete the song’s ethos with a tidy helping of lo-fi edits. “In a corner in the city there is someone like you,” sings the multi-talented artist, breaking the song’s ethos down to its purest and simplest form. As of yet, there’s no official news of on a second full length Lido album – but if this is the caliber of musical vision that fans can anticipate, it’s going to be more than worth the wait.
