Papercuts (singer/songwriter Jason Quever) has announced the release of a new album, Past Life Regression, which will be out on April 1 via Slumberland. Quever has also shared two songs from the album: “I Want My Jacket Back” and “The Strange Boys,” the former of which has a music video directed by David Enos. Check it out below, along with the album’s tracklist/cover art.

Quever elaborates on the new songs in a press release, stating about “I Want My Jacket Back”: “It started out as a bit of absurdist fun, as I was feeling at my wits’ end during the end of the U.S. election cycle. I was thinking about someone I met in L.A. who seemed to believe every absurd conspiracy theory they heard, even some that seemed to contradict each other. At the same time, I was for the first time considering leaving the U.S. I felt robbed of a sense of security and faith in humanity, and was missing a sense of normalcy. It may have been an illusion in the first place, but a pleasant one.”

On “The Strange Boys,” he adds: “I pictured a Twilight Zone style black and white story about a group of teens that communicate with a supernatural entity. Later I realized it’s probably an analogy about what happens to the spirit upon death. Anyhow, it shows off what real mellotron flutes sound like when you abuse the pitch knob.”
