US singer, songwriter, and producer Cautious Clay has performed a pair of stripped-back tracks for the latest instalment of Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’, a series in which artists perform from home following a year which has seen live shows become a rarity.
Having last released a new album by way of 2019’s Table of Context, Cautious Clay has spent most of the last year working on and releasing new music, having released the likes of “Agreeable” and “Dying in The Subtlety” in 2020. Now, with latest single “Roots” arriving this week, it appears as though we’re getting ever-closer to the release of a new record.
In the meantime though, Cautious Clay has been kind enough to donate his time to a live performance for the ‘In My Room’ series, sharing a stripped-back live rendition of the former two singles for your listening enjoyment.
Kicking things off with “Agreeable”, Cautious Clay is joined by Chris Kyle as the pair jump into a passionate performance of the track. Discussing the song afterwards, Cautious Clay explains that the song is written about “how difficult it is to sometimes be agreeable with one another sometimes, but especially right now.”
As Kyle takes on the acoustic guitar to wrap up the performance with “Dying in The Subtlety”, it’s clear that Cautious Clay is not only one of the finest performers on the scene right now, but that his forthcoming album might just be one of the year’s best.
