Shamir shares new single, ‘Call It Off’

Watch a muppet-ified new video for the track, taken from ‘Ratchet’.

Las Vegas newcomer Shamir has unveiled a percussive blast of a new single with ‘Call It Off’.

A distorted, bass-centric funk twist, the track appears on Shamir Bailey’s forthcoming debut album ‘Ratchet’, out 18th May via XL Recordings. It links up with lead single ‘On The Regular’, which put Shamir on the map back in 2014.

Update: Shamir’s shared a fantastic, muppet-filled new video for the track. Beginning in the local desert, Bailey’s soon transported into a retail job that’s enlivened by his muppet friends.
