Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr.) has announced a new album, Caer, and shared two songs from it, "Saturdays" (which features HAIM) and "Little Woman" (the latter shared via a video). Caer is due out April 27 via Warner Bros./Reprise. Check out both songs below, followed by Twin Shadow's upcoming tour dates.

The album is Twin Shadow's fourth full-length album and the follow-up to 2015's Eclipse (and the free Night Rally mixtape from the same year). It's the first album since the 2015 tour bus accident that resulted in Lewis having hand surgery. Caer is pronounced ka-air and is the Spanish word for "to fall." Lewis considers this a sister album to his acclaimed 2010 debut album, Forget, as a press release adds, "in that it's a record with hidden doorways and secret passages; more is revealed the more time you spend inside of it." 

Lewis had this to say about the album in the press release: "Sometimes I feel like I have to take a fall to essentially get to the next phase of my life. It's happened over and over. I've been through so many musical phases and through so many relationships with friends and lovers. I always feel like I'm standing on the edge of a cliff, looking down and thinking, 'This is the only way forward: onto the next thing.' It's sort of destructive, but I guess I thrive on rebirth."

The press release further describes Caer and its themes: "The album serves as a powerful lens through which Lewis explores his own personal sense of falling, as well as what he has observed about a world that feels as if it's declining. On a larger scale, Caer feels extraordinarily current, given what's going on culturally and politically right now." 

As Lewis puts it: "The patriarchy is falling apart. Our perceptions of who we are as human beings, because of technology and machines, are falling apart. We're living at a breaking point, and a lot of the themes on the album are talking about these fault lines."

Lewis calls "Saturdays" a love song, adding: "'Saturdays' is the heaven place you go to when you're in love or even with friends, feeling your youth. But it's also about my feeling that the world is starting to tear itself apart and maybe we're falling through the cracks. But when you're laying in bed next to someone you care about, none of that seems real."
