Twin Shadow Announces New Self-Titled Album Due 7/9

Today, Twin Shadow (George Lewis Jr.) announces his new self-titled album. Due July 9th via his own Cheree Cheree label, Twin Shadow brims with joy. The follow-up to his 2018 full-length Caer, the album represents Lewis’ biggest sonic shift to date and finds the artist reexamining the cherished sounds of the golden era of soul and punk that were part of his musical upbringing and embracing his Dominican heritage, recording portions of the album at FAMA Studios in the Dominican Republic. Twin Shadow contains previously released singles, “Alemania” which features backing vocals by Kadhja Bonet, and “Johnny & Jonnie” .

Twin Shadow is also sharing the third offering from the upcoming album in conjunction with its announcement, the effervescent and intimate “Get Closer.” Lewis wrote this song while considering the loss of nuance in relationships, and in speaking to that consideration further he shares, “Oftentimes we Band-Aid the problems that spring up along the way with the words ‘I love you’ or ‘but, I love you’. The idea that there is maybe a state between people that could be wildly closer than what we traditionally know as ‘love’ is a very exciting and hopeful thing to me. ‘I’ve got so much to learn about you / I’ve got to study’ and ‘I know you’re crucified each day for living’ are lines that hopefully show a dedication to getting better and a will to understand the depths and the complexities of the other.”
