With his upcoming self-titled album arriving next week (2nd October), Shamir is giving us the latest taste of what to expect, sharing brooding country-tinged new track ‘Other Side’.
Speaking on the inspiration, Shamir says, “I watched an episode of Unsolved Mysteries about a woman whose husband was lost during the Vietnam War and how she never gave up trying to get answers about what happened to him. I wrote this song from her perspective. They’re both now deceased, so the song is also about how (I hope) they’ve reunited in the afterlife, or more accurately, the ‘Other Side.’”
