Spencer. : New Single 'No Direction' Out Now
8th September 2021

Ahead of this Friday’s release of his debut album, Are U Down?, Spencer. has shared a third and final single ‘No Direction’ today. A heart-on-its-sleeve love song, its official video reunites Spencer. with director Danica Arias Kleinknecht (also behind the visuals for his 2019 single ‘Automatic’). "We shot the video in Jersey one night in the town where Danica's from,” Spencer. explains. “We started shooting at 5pm and shot all night in the dark. I love how this one came together. It's psychedelic without any visual effects and that's the magic of working with Danica"

Featuring 4AD labelmate Becky and the Birds (vocals on ‘After The Show’), Luke Diamond (guitars) and Jake Aron (some additional production), Spencer. has integrated neo-soul vocal fireworks, hip-hop flow and pop ambition into an album steeped in all the feels of a New York summer.
