What the heck is going on! Shamir, you are a machine! A very soulful machine, however. This time he dropped ‘Resolution’ the new 8 song surprise album. Then he said here’s another double side single in the form of ‘Room’. Hey, whatever goes on with Shamir, it’s fab with us. He’s one artist we really respect and look forward to always.
The one of a kind artist just loves country music (one of many reasons why we love Shamir’s music) and he shows it in his songs’ focus and presentation.
‘Room’ features the first two new tracks from Shamir since the DIY darling’s critically acclaimed November 2017 album Revelations. The two songs on Room are produced by Big Taste, the Los Angeles based songwriter, producer, and vocalist.
“Cuz I don’t wanna be in like with you because it turns to love and all lovers do is fall out of love, cuz everything ends and you’re stuck having to begin again.” – Shamir
Dang you Shamir. We like you even more.
Anywho, both offerings are available now as a limited 7” vinyl and digital release.
He’s re’ed by Father/Daughter Records.
