Today American Idol alum and Chicago local Adem Dalipi has released his eagerly anticipated EP: After the Party. In addition to Dalipi’s recent works “Empty Promises,” “Nothing I Wouldn’t Do,” and “Call You Mine,” the talented young popstar adds two new tracks – “Circles” and title-song “After the Party” to his sophomore release.
In After the Party, Dalipi is delivering to the world a heartfelt toast to the mantra he lives by “when words fail, music speaks.” These songs for a soul lost to love are now available to listen across streaming platforms everywhere.
Adem Dalipi’s After the Party EP puts on display the wide range of musical ability that old fans and new can expect out of the young singer-songwriter and producer. Through Dalipi’s mellow melodies, listeners can experience the highs and lows of love lyrically and sonically. Between “Nothing I Wouldn’t Do”’s take on jazz-pop and “Circles” taste of RnB, the young artist has crafted an album with the mindset of the unsettled inner emotions after a ‘party.’
As a songwriter, Dalipi is constantly reviewing and reconstructing, pushing himself towards growth. The blues undertones heard throughout the five pieces in the After the Party EP can be attributed to Dalipi’s self-taught musicianship. About pushing himself and creating this EP experience Dalipi states:
“‘After the Party’ is an EP that collects the 3 songs I’ve released over the past year, along with two other singles “Circles” and “After the Party”. This EP has been a long process to get out with COVID changing up the game of the industry, but that allowed me to go back to the drawing board and restrategize the release, and I’m really excited to drop the full project.” – Adem Dalipi
