Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr.) is releasing a new album, Caer, on April 27 via Warner Bros./Reprise. Previously he shared two songs from it, "Saturdays" (which features HAIM) and "Little Woman" (the latter shared via a video). Both made our Songs of the Week list. Then he shared a third song, the John Hughes soundtrack sounding "Brace" (featuring Rainsford), via a video that played more like a lyric video (it was also a Song of the Week). Now he has shared another song from the album, the somewhat funky "When You're Wrong." Listen below, followed by Lewis' 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 previous press release added, "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 described 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 put 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."
