Amos Lee is one day away from releasing Spirit – his first studio album in three years – but PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at the official music video for his new track, "Vaporize."
The funky song marks a departure from Lee's more intimate acoustic fare. "I was really interested in trying to combine elements of alternative R&B," he tells PEOPLE. "I've been listening to a lot of stuff like Schoolboy Q and early Weeknd, and I was just really digging how tracks were built. I grew up listening to mostly R&B music, so I was never a stranger to anything of that nature. I mean, I'm from Philly! But to be able to play that stuff in a live setting with a live drummer is a lot more challenging."
