Twin Shadow premieres new song ‘Locked And Loaded’ – listen

Singer confirms new album will be released in October

Twin Shadow has premiered new song ‘Locked And Loaded’ and revealed that his new album will be released in October.

Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis Jr, played an acoustic version of the song during comedy podcast Comedy Bang Bang, which can be heard below, as well as a version of another new song, ‘To The Top’, which has previously been played on tour.

In a brief and jokey interview with hosts Scott Aukerman and Mary Lynn Rajskub, when asked for a release date for the follow-up to his 2012 album ‘Confess’, Lewis said, “Yeah, it’s out in October.” Asked if all the letters of his new album’s title could be found in the word “synthesizer”, Lewis responded, “No. It’s got quite a few letters.”

Twin Shadow plays at Summer Set festival in Somerset on August 16 as well as the NME/Radio 1 stage of Leeds Festival on August 22 and Reading Festival on August 24. Between those dates they play a one-off headline date on August 20 at London Village Underground.

Since second album ‘Confess’, Lewis has appeared as a DJ in Grand Theft Auto V and featured on Zeds Dead’s song ‘Lost You’.
