Shamir has announced his ninth album.

The Philadelphia artist will return on August 18 with 'Homo Anxietatem', marking his debut release for the Kill Rock Stars label. Produced by Hoost, aka Justin Tailor, it's preceded by the alt-pop track Oversized Sweater. Commenting on it, he said:

"The first quarter of 2020 before lockdown I felt a lot of anxiety. I was fresh out the psych ward and had quit smoking weed and cigarettes cold turkey. I spent the first couple months of 2020 knitting this huge baby blue sweater. It’s basically a wearable security blanket that I used to channel all my anxiety into. I wear it all the time, but most notably in the video for my song Diet."

Of the accompanying video, he added: "I found this room set in LA and knew it would be perfect for the video. It was shot and co directed by myself and my friend and tour manager Felix Donate Perez."

'Homo Anxietatem' follows the singer-songwriter's 2022 album 'Heterosexuality'. He'll support it with UK shows in October, with dates and venues to be revealed next month.

1. Oversized Sweater
2. Wandering Through
3. Our Song
4. Appetizer
5. Calloused
