Shamir shares video for 'Darker' + Album details

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Shamir has released the music video for his latest single ‘Darker’ overnight. The track - which comes from his upcoming album Ratchet - exhibits a different side from his bouncy, uptempo material such as ‘Call It Off’ and ‘On The Regular’. 

In the video for ‘Darker’ Shamir, a Las Vegas native, is alone in the Joshua Tree desert singing as night transforms into day and then back to night again. When speaking about ‘Darker’, Shamir has said “It doesn’t get darker, unless you expect it to”. 

Ratchet, Shamir’s debut album, is due for release on May 15th and will be released by XL Recordings and Remote Control Records. In the lead-up to the release of the album, Shamir launched his very own relationship hotline - 1-844-4SHAMIR - which was inspired by his single ‘Call It Off’.
