Most of what we’ve heard from Twin Shadow in 2014 has come in the form of covers or remixes. But after releasing two fresh originals (“To The Top” and Zeds Dead-collaboration “Lost You”) and announcing a string of fall tour dates, hope was raised for a follow-up to 2012’s Confess. Now, George Lewis Jr. has confirmed that a new album is in fact due later this year, and he’s treated fans to a brand new song.
The Twin Shadow mastermind was a guest on a recent episode of Comedy Bang! Bang!’s podcast. While the general discussion was fairly odd and awkwardly sexual (apparently Lewis Jr.’s ideal sex partner “depends on the country” he’s in), it was revealed that a new record should be expected in October. In addition, he performed a pair of tracks we can expect on the LP: the previously-released “To The Top” and a new number called “Locked and Loaded”.
You can listen to the podcast below, and skip to 6:50 for the beginning of the interview. “Locked and Loaded” can be heard at the 1:01:45 mark and “To The Top” comes up at 1:36:44.
