Chicago-bred indie rocker Nnamdï has unveiled his forthcoming album, Please Have a Seat, his first with Secretly Canadian. The paparazzi-invading video for its first single, “I Don’t Wanna Be Famous,” is out now.


The Austin Vesley-directed clip finds Nnamdï taking matters into his own hands to avoid paparazzi photographers, all the while indulging in a lavish lifestyle in a big mansion.

Please Have a Seat is slated for release on Oct. 7 in tandem with Nnamdï’s own Sooper Records imprint. Nnamdï wrote, produced and performed all 14 of its tracks himself. Shortly after the album release, Nnamdï will begin a North American tour Oct. 18 in Davenport, Ia. Tickets go on sale Friday (July 1).
