Suburban Las Vegas native Shamir has just announced his follow up to 2015’s critically-acclaimed Ratchet LP, and 2017 self-released second album Hope.

Called Revelations, the album will drop on 3 November. Billed as "music for misfits", fans can expect a more thoughtful suite than the sassy upbeat pop that made Ratchet (and in particular breakthrough single ‘On The Regular’) so beloved by fans and critics alike.

Following a period developing his sound in the wilderness and moving to Brooklyn, then Philadelphia after being dropped by XL, Shamir signed this summer to San Francisco’s Father/Daughter Records. His current influences are said to be more along the lines of country, punk and a more vulnerable stripped-down aesthetic than on previous tracks.

Teaser song '90s Kids' dropped this week, a rallying call to the much-maligned Millenial generation.

‘In debt before we slave / But mom just thinks we rave’ goes a typical couplet.

The lo-fi video is set on a mocked-up Windows 95 desktop, with a rapid-fire succession of familiar memes (bad luck Brian, success kid, Gatsby, ‘Aliens’ guy, Dat Boi; you get the picture) spelling out lyrics on a cascade of closing windows.

Track listing for ‘Revelations’:

1. Games
2. You Have A Song
3. 90’s Kids
4. Her Story
5. Blooming
6. Cloudy
7. Float
8. Astral Plane
9. Straight Boy
