Shamir is back with news of his forthcoming album Heterosexuality, and has unveiled new single “Cisgender” to accompany the announcement.
“Cisgender” is Shamir’s first new outing since last month’s “Gay Agenda”, and arrives with a Jenny He-directed video.
The new single is also teamed with news of Shamir’s follow-up to 2020’s self-titled seventh album, which is titled Heterosexuality.
Stereogum reports that Shamir said of the album, “I think this album is me finally acknowledging my trauma. Everyone knows I’ve been through so much shit and I kind of just rammed through, without really acknowledging the actual trauma that I do feel on almost a daily basis.”
As well as preparing a new album, Shamir recently appeared on Oberhofer’s “SUNSHiiNE” with The Strokes’ Nick Valensi last month.
“Cisgender” is out now. Shamir’s Heterosexuality album will follow on February 11 2022.
