Daniel Caesar Drops Surprise Album ‘CASE STUDY 01’

Daniel Caesar surprises fans with the release of his new album CASE STUDY 01.

The 10 tracks include collaborations with Pharrell Williams, John Mayer, and Brandy, who duets with Caesar on the soulful lead single “Love Again.” “These are my heroes,” he tells Apple Music. “People who I never thought I’d ever collaborate with, until the opportunity came up and it was like, ‘Is this really real?'”

The album, which follows Caesar’s 2017 debut Freudian, finds the Grammy-winning singer confronting good and evil, life and death, and religion. “I’m drawn to touchy subjects. They’re my favorite,” he says. “I’ve been reading a lot about Judaism and Kabbalah and meditation. And I was raised religious, so it’s like my operating system. But I also needed to free myself from that—to live.”

Along with the album, the Canadian crooner has announced dates for his “CASE STUDY 01: TOUR PT. 1.” The international trek kicks off July 20 in Jakarta, Indonesia before traveling across Asia. The North American leg commences July 30 in Honolulu with special guest Koffee on select dates. Tickets go on sale beginning July 2 at 12 p.m. local time.
