Following the stellar release of her last single Hotel Du Palais featuring Nick Vyner, which saw Lili Caseley elevating her career further, the artist of French-Portuguese heritage now returns with arguably her most creative and ambitious song yet: Al Pacino.
The upbeat pop number boasts clever lyricism throughout on a bed of contemporary sounding guitars and instrumentation, with a beat that makes you want to get up and move. Caseley gives nods to notorious names such as Pacino, who the track is titled after, and Pablo Escobar, as well as fictional characters like James Bond, amongst others.
With hints of Lily Allen, Ariane Grande and Shania Twain, Al Pacino is possibly the most accessible song Lili Caseley has put on paper. On writing the track, she says:
“There is a music video ready soon where we are using a projector and referencing all the famous music video references: Scarface, Tarantino, James Bond, Pablo Escobar, Michelangelo…We want the story to be the viewpoint of the femme fatale. Her lens of the tale. So Elvira’s side of the story from Scarface. By using the projector we are able to travel to many different places…”
Al Pacino is out on the 11th of November and will be accompanied by a music video which pays respect to the lyricism employed by Caseley throughout the track, only envisioned through the lens of Elvira, the femme fatale from Scarface. The video will soon be available to view in advance of the release.
