Moses Sumney – Vintage

Moses Sumney officially marks his return to music with the release of his new single “Vintage” today. After taking time to make his film & TV acting debuts, “Vintage” is Moses’ first new original music since his 2020 album græ.

The self-directed music video for the song bears the hallmarks of his past directorial work – the distinctive lushness of his live concert film Blackalachia, the comedic surrealism of “Cut Me,” and the kinetic physicality of “Virile” (a standout from his second album græ).



Moses says, “‘Vintage’ is me sliding into the music I probably listen to most these days – progressive R&B. I crafted the video as a callback to the 90s/2000s clips of my childhood, when men weren’t afraid to beg and plead. I am once again begging to join the pantheon of great yearners: K-Ci & Jojo, Omarion, Ray J, Jodeci, Jagged Edge. Desire has always been at the core of my work; now the desire has a little shimmering shimmy to it.”

In close collaboration with Moses and cinematographer Marcell Rév (Euphoria, Malcolm & Marie, Miley Cyrus’s “Flowers”), Kodak supported the music video with a yet-to-be-released and never-before-used motion picture stock, which is similar to a beloved professional still photography film.
