Twin Shadow will return with his fourth full-length effort, Caer, on April 27th via Warner Bros. Records/Reprise. He’s now revealed the details of the release as well as a new track called “Brace”.
Caer follows 2015’s Eclipse and marks the first Twin Shadow album since the band’s 2015 tour bus crash and George Lewis Jr.’s subsequent reconstructive hand surgery. Lewis Jr. explains in a press release that the record is about having “to take a fall to essentially get to the next phase of my life.”
That theme is expressed explicitly in “Brace”, which features Rainsford. The song is a bright and relatively minimalistic composition built on choral samples and some pretty piano work. “Sometimes we brace/ And then fall,” Lewis Jr. sings on the hook. “Sometimes we don’t feel right / Sometimes we don’t fall at all .”
