The Los Angeles-based producer AUDREY NAPOLEON has today (June 14) teamed with cutting-edge fashion/lifestyle magazine Flaunt for the worldwide premiere of the official music video for her upcoming single "Dope A La Mode." In the video, one of AUDREY NAPOLEON's raciest visuals to date, we see the heroine partake in a S&M sex scene, a Gothic church wedding, a murder and a literal bloodbath. "Dope A La Mode" sees its official release June 25 on SQE Music. Watch the "Dope A La Mode" official music video here: http://youtu.be/tGykC1Z8z3s.
On "Dope A La Mode," AUDREY NAPOLEON takes her production prowess to a new high. The track features thumping electro/house bass, eerie and equally sexy vocals—with lyrics written and performed by AUDREY herself—topped with her signature flair. AUDREY NAPOLEON, known for her notorious visual persona, stirs up the controversy with the "Dope A La Mode" video, taking shots at sex, religion, violence, gender and more. The video also features Semi Precious Weapons lead vocalist Justin Tranter, who plays the role of AUDREY's husband.
Life is but a dream for performance artist and producer AUDREY NAPOLEON, whether it unfolds through her inimitable approach to music, visual arts and fashion, or it is witnessed onstage as she performs in clubs, festivals or on runways.
A year in AUDREY NAPOLEON's life reads like an entire creative lifetime of others. "I don't think I've come down from what's happened to me in the last year," she confesses in one interview. The last 12 months saw her release six singles with teaser films to match, alongside her debut EP Ornamental Egos, which was met with aplomb by fans and fellow musicians. Her single, "Poison," was hard-hitting, while Tiësto, Eric Prydz and Adrian Lux regularly threw down another of her tracks, "Banana Soda Es Muy Loca," in clubs and festivals worldwide.
It all seeps from AUDREY's extraordinary stylized expression and musical prowess. "When I am on stage, I am transformed," she explains about being in front of large audiences, including the 18-city Identity Festival tour she completed in 2012. "The world that is that stage, that audience… is one that is beautiful and free. One, that in our darkest moments, my fans and I are safe," she explains.
While AUDREY found herself remixing CC Sheffield's "Long Brown Hair" (Ultra), Parker's, "So Beautiful" (Interscope) and Adrian Lux's "Damaged" (Ultra), Nero did the same for her tune "#mysunrise," which she wrote for an ambassadorship with Heineken's "Sunrise Belongs to Moderate Drinkers" campaign (currently airing in 28 countries globally).
On the live stage, AUDREY most recently played international events for Heineken, including Coachella and a closing slot for The Cure for the brand's Jammin' Festival. She also did a mock runway show in front of England's Queen Elizabeth, Elton John and Katy Perry with another collaborative project, The Rodnik Band x Audrey Napoleon S/S 2013, also featured in Vogue Italia.
In the last year, AUDREY NAPOLEON has also written music for Fredrik Bond's full-length directorial debut The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman starring Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood. Her track "Only You" was also featured in the season finale of Naomi Campbell's show "The Face," and AUDREY also participated as a celebrity model during New York Fashion Week for S/S 2013 Malgorzata Dudek. Later this year, AUDREY will be featured in a coffee table book and corresponding photography exhibition from celebrated music/lifestyle photographer Joseph Llanes. The book, out December 2013, will also feature Jeff Bridges, Placebo, Jack White, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Trent Reznor, Rihanna, Florence Welch and many more. AUDREY NAPOLEON will also release several new singles later this year (more info TBA soon).
