Shamir has shared a video for his new song “The Beginning,” which is the fourth and final single to be released from his upcoming album Homo Anxietatem. This LP is due out August 18 via Kill Rock Stars. Shamir also has some tour dates coming up. Check out “The Beginning” below, followed by the upcoming performances.

“The Beginning” dives into the missteps of a relationship gone by, while feeling emotionally trapped as time barrels forward. Shamir directed the hometown video filmed in Bartram’s Garden with musician friends, including members of the band Friendship and Ladifa.

Of the song, he says in a press release:“‘The Beginning’ is a song I wrote when I was 14 years old and had never experienced love, yet I was already inundated by all the typical tropes. Even back then I realized a happy ending was contingent on a healthy beginning. The video represents the healing power of being around friends after a break up.”

Shamir previously released three other Homo Anxietatem songs, “Our Song,” “Oversized Sweater” and “Crime.” “Oversized Sweater” was featured on our Songs of the Week.
