Johnny Jewel’s Chromatics have unveiled a brand new track, ‘Shadow’.
The song arrives as part of Adult Swim’s 2015 Singles series - previous releases have come from Shabazz Palaces and Danny Brown w/ Clams Casino - and it’s taken from the new Chromatics album ‘Dear Tommy’, the follow-up to ‘Kill For Love’. Jewel calls the upcoming full-length “the most rebellious record I’ve made,” and he also had this to say about the song:
“Everyone has a shadow. There is no real difference between ten years ago and ten seconds ago. Your future determines your past. The flame of nostalgia is a tempting black hole to jump into, but I recognize it as a fantasy.
Romance is brave. So is simplicity. Love is a call to war. Why wouldn’t you want to respect music.”
