Twin Shadow (Live Set)
George Lewis Jr., better known as Twin Shadow, is an LA-based singer, songwriter, record producer, writer, and actor. His fourth album, Caer, will be released on April 27, 2018. Falling is a theme that surfaces throughout the album, which is why Lewis called it Caer - the Spanish word for "to fall." The album serves as a powerful lens through which Lewis explores his own personal sense of falling, as well as what he has observed about a world that feels as if it's declining. On a larger scale, Caer feels extraordinarily current, given what's going on culturally and politically right now.
