Today, Twin Shadow aka George Lewis Jr. revealed the cover art, track listing and teaser video to his forthcoming album ‘Eclipse’ which is now available for pre-order. When speaking about ECLIPSE Twin Shadow had a pretty standard Twin-Shadowy, neo-philosophical rant about it. Mr Lewis was quoted, saying:
“My whole world seemed to come apart during the recording and touring of my first two albums. It seemed to break off into two large chunks; one relating to self awareness and confidence and the other being a desire to seek out the best in people around me. They began to drift slowly away from each other. Balancing the two became an almost impossible task and I feared having to choose one or the other.
Before the start of the recording of ECLIPSE I felt these things pull even further away, and in thinking I had lost both, I felt a deep solitude. When I began recording in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (where I built my studio), I forgot about these things and focused only on what was in front of me: practical things, mundane things, things that simply kept me busy and not bored.
Without realizing it during this period, the things I lost hold of began to move towards each other again. Through this shift many things began to re-establish themselves; including loving relationships, a strength in the dynamic between my mother & I, as well as energetic states of mind and general excitement to play music. Things were aligned again without me trying to control them.”
He created a stupidly weird “teaser” for the album, but don’t count on this one to predict the album, it’s also sure to be stupidly awesome. It’s out on March 17th and will kick solid A. Pre-order ‘Eclipse’ here: http://smarturl.it/tseclipse
