Shamir announces self-titled seventh album with new single, ‘I Wonder’
Following on from the brilliant ‘On My Own’ released just last month, the enigmatic and prolific SHAMIR is back not only with a new single out now, but another new album on the way. The self-titled album marks the artist’s seventh, and second this year.
The new single, titled ‘I Wonder’ is a close examination of those moments in life when sometimes “love” can be bad for you. In a statement about the song, Shamir explained it is “about the feeling of love taking over your heart, even when you don’t want it to. It also alludes to climate change and how humans (‘love’) can be the most toxic thing to the planet (‘the heart’), but also the only thing that can fix it.”
In regards to why the record is self-titled, Shamir said, “I felt like it didn’t need a name, cuz it’s the record that’s most me.”
