“This record is the most I’ve ever intentionally worked on a project, musically speaking, in terms of the scope of it and how much thought went into it,” shares Alejandro Rose-Garcia aka Shakey Graves. “It’s a dense album; there’s a lot of information going on”

Thirteen new songs venture through reflections and life lessons learned from personal experiences dating as far back as high school. “The beautiful lesson of all this is having to trust yourself, to be willing to start something that you don’t know the outcome of,” he reflects. “Or to lean toward something just because it feels right, even though it may not be what you originally put down on paper. Those are the kind of stories in this record. They’re not so much about specific people, or even myself per se. They’re different shades of every person’s life”

In addition to the album, Shakey Graves will be heading out on tour in the UK in February, with all dates already sold out…
