Cavetown has shared details of his new album ‘Worm Food’ alongside a new single ‘1994’ and news of an extended UK tour.
The singer-songwriter (real name Robin Skinner) will release his fifth album – the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Sleepyhead’ – on November 4 via Sire Records.
Skinner said of his new single: “‘1994’ is about dealing with perceived guilt and how it can become over-exaggerated in my head. I’m working on defining the line between what’s really wrong in a situation versus what is made up in my head, because it’s the parts that aren’t real that I end up feeling quite guilty about.
“The lyrics are a message to myself, to help me see that there’s still a child inside of me that is deserving of love and care. The line ‘Say you’re coming around / I need you lately everything’s been getting me down’ is about feeling comforted by isolating myself, but learning to be comforted by the presence of someone else.”
