Shamir releases new single ‘Running’

It’s the latest track from his self-titled new album.

With his new album ‘Shamir’ set for release on 2nd October, Shamir is giving us the latest glimpse into what we can expect, releasing new single ‘Running’.

“‘Running’ is a song I wrote about a time in my life when I was a part of a toxic friend group where I was the only non-cis person,” Shamir explains. “The song is from the perspective of me now realizing how much it affected my mental health after being a few years removed and realizing how much I was dulling myself down so I did not stick out any more than I already did - and also how that directly made me experience gender dysphoria for the first time ever.”

Accompanied by a new vid animated by Faye Orlove, check it out now below.
