Shamir shared another single from his upcoming album, Homo Anxietatem, which arrives August 18 on Kill Rock Stars. Following the previously released tracks ‘Oversized Sweater’, ‘Our Song’, and ‘Crime’, ‘The Beginning’ comes with a self-directed video filmed in Bartram’s Garden with musicians including members of the band Friendship and the artist Ladifa. Check it out below.
“’The Beginning’ is a song I wrote when I was 14 years old and had never experienced love, yet I was already inundated by all the typical tropes,” Shamir explained in a statement. “Even back then I realized a happy ending was contingent on a healthy beginning. The video represents the healing power of being around friends after a break up.”
