88rising up-and-comer Warren Hue has released a brand-new single, 'Too Many Tears'. It also serves as the lead single for Head in the Clouds 3, the long-awaited third installment of 88rising's Head In The Clouds compilation album series.
YEAAAAAAAA TOO MANY TEARS IS OUT NOW and its one of my favorites EVER! love you guys bless up— warren (@warrenhue) May 20, 2021
The mellow R&B track arrived with a visual directed by James Defina, where the rapper reckons with loneliness and heartbreak. Check it out below:
The video also includes a mysterious teaser at the end with cameos from fellow 88rising labelmates Rich Brian and NIKI.
The title card reads "'California' / Head In The Clouds 3 / May 27th", hinting at a release date for Head In The Clouds 3. The previous Head In The Clouds II featured collaborations with Jackson Wang, Phum Viphurit, Swae Lee, and more.
Additionally, 88rising also linked up with Microsoft to release TOOMANYTEARS.AI, an audio-visual experience using AI to analyse videos of San Gabriel Valley and remix stems from the track. The initiative is meant to spotlight the diverse Asian-American communities who reside in San Gabriel Valley, and forms part of Microsoft's ongoing AI-empowered music series.
Extremely proud to debut “Too Many Tears,” a never-ending remix powered by @microsoft AI, produced with @88rising & their artist @warrenhue. It’s a sonic meditation on the San Gabriel Valley, home to one of the largest Asian American communities in the US. https://t.co/Kiyqf9yckp— Listen (@WeAreListen) May 20, 2021
