Have you heard of Fred Again? If not, you are in for a lovely, lovely surprise. This guy is the real deal. It isn’t music, it’s art. In March of this year, The Guardian hit the nail right on the head when stating, “If there’s a universal language of pop right now, then Fred Again speaks it fluently…” His Spotify page describes his music as “Actual Life”, a trademark sound that features vocals uncovered from the unlikeliest of sources; obscure YouTube clips to personal FaceTime conversations, etc.
You really must dive into his releases to see what he is all about. Words can’t really paint a full picture. I have dropped embeds for his Boiler Room set to see what Fred is like in person. The experience must be mental and I plan on seeing him very soon. I have also dropped Actual Life 1 and 2 below for you to dive into. I recommend you start at AC1. His fourth album, “Actual Life 3” is set to be released on Saturday Oct. 15th.

Born and raised in London, England, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ has been making waves as of recent. I only caught wind about 5 or so months ago, but I am literally hooked. Like I need to see a doctor, I think. The main attraction for me is the “rawness” of his releases. There isn’t this big production of perfection when it comes to the album art or social media content. They are usually selfies Fred has taken himself. Happy listening!
