Ahead of the release of his debut album next month, Oscar Lang has shared his brand new ’21st Century Hobby’.
The track gets taken from his debut full-length ‘Chew The Scenery’, which will be released on 16th July via Dirty Hit.
“‘21st Century Hobby’ is a tune based on the idea of society’s obsession with sharing your life online and comparing yourself to other people,” Oscar has commented, in a press release. “There was one point where I was spending 13 hours a week on social media, which equated to about a month every year. That was a really dark time for me - I always thought that it would never affect me, but it took some time to realise that it was subconsciously affecting my mental health.”
And that’s not all: Oscar has also scheduled a seven-date UK headline tour this October, which comes sandwiched in between several festival appearances later this year.
