New Release: Shakey Graves – Mansion Door

Shakey Graves has shared the new track Mansion Door, taken from his forthcoming record Can’t Wake Up – released May 4th

Take a listen below…

Mansion Door is the third song out from the forthcoming album, following tracks Counting Sheep and Kids These Days, shared as The Sleep EP

“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”
