Twin Shadow Signs to Warner Bros., Readies New Album For 2015 Release

Nearly three months after Twin Shadow postponed a major tour “to make sure we get it right,” the singer/multi-instrumentalist has rerouted the national run for next spring — right around the same time as his major label debut. That’s right: Twin Shadow’s next album will be on Warner Bros., following previous full-lengths on Terrible and 4AD.

“Towards the end of the recording of the third Twin Shadow album I came into a strong feeling,” George Lewis Jr. wrote in a press release, “a place of creative change from which I’d like to give you an uncompromised experience at every turn. In order to push in the right direction I had to put the brakes on the tour, the planned album release, and reconsider where Twin Shadow was headed. With a bit of perspective I came to realize that I was going to need help to pull off the vision for this next album.

He continued, “I’m excited to announce that I’ve found a group of like minded people at Warner Bros. Records to help me accomplish this goal. In the interest of progress and adventure I look forward to the new relationship (and hopefully a coffee with Prince).”

Good luck with that; in the meantime, here’s the soaring “To the Top” single Twin Shadow unveiled six months back, along with his upcoming tour dates. More new music is also expected before the end of the year.
