Limited Edition 12" Vinyl EP!
Collaboration Between Daniele Luppi & Cigarettes After Sex's Greg Gonzalez!

Los Angeles-based artist Daniele Luppi and Cigarettes After Sex's Greg Gonzalez have announced their collaborative project, Charm of Pleasure.

The five-track EP takes both artists into new creative terrain, blending their elegant songwriting and dream-pop excellence into a fresh sound that nevertheless complements their respective catalogs. "You Never Loved" arrives with a striking video directed by Luppi himself, featuring a contemporary dancer floating around a vacant library in an emerald green suit.

Luppi and Gonzalez's inspiration for the new project came from a number of sources, including the "futuristic decay" of Blade Runner and the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Luppi and Gonzalez met via a mutual friend and swiftly formed a close artistic bond. "I was really impressed with his taste," says Luppi. "When we met, we discovered we had a remarkable amount in common."

When Luppi returned to Los Angeles, the pair went into the studio and created "Another Life" on their first day of working together. "I was blown away by what I heard - just totally floored," recalls Luppi. "If that song didn't happen the way it did, I don't know if everything else would've come together."

He adds of Charm of Pleasure: "Everything was created in a very spontaneous way. All the music was written down, but Greg's vocals were almost improvised, in a way."

The EP follows Milano, Luppi's 2017 album collaboration with Parquet Courts frontman Andrew Savage and Karen O. Capturing the underground energy of 1980s Milan, it was hailed by Pitchfork as "superficial, vibrant, and full of possibility." Earlier, in 2011, Luppi had created the Rome project with Danger Mouse, and he is also known for his work with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gnarls Barkley, John Legend, Broken Bells, and others.
