Shannon Lay will release her debut record August on the 23rd of the month.

On the title single ‘August’, Lay shares that “August is a declaration. I will live my life the way I want to live it and only accept the opportunities that bring me joy. Music has become something that feels much bigger than I am. I fully embrace the immensity of it all and will grow with it every day.”

Recorded with her longtime friend, musician Ty Segall at his home studio Lay says that “I believe whoever you record with tends to affect the mood of music and Ty really brought this jovial sense that I hadn’t really explored yet. Once you get rolling with him, he just throws these ideas at the wall. And you’re like, ‘I would never have thought of that!’ I couldn’t have hoped for a better guide and energy to help create this record.”
