Earlier today, a short documentary entitled The Unseen Beauty (directed by Gabriel de Urioste) was released online, tracing the life story of Ghanaian artist Samuel Adoquei. In addition to being an unbelievably talented artist, Adoquei also happens to be the stepfather of the Strokes frontman and generally drool-worthy rockstar, Julian Casablancas. To our excitement, the film features an original, previously-unheard song by Casablancas: an understated but strikingly beautiful combo of light vocals and keyboard that together make the perfect background tune for a touching story. You can watch the film below, or just skip to the seven-minute mark to catch Julian’s melodic appearance.
