Shamir has released the video for his new song “Gay Agenda.” The track was recorded with producer Hollow Comet of the band Strange Ranger.
In the artful Jenny He-directed visual, Shamir dons horns as he sings over an industrial-pop groove and celebrates embracing who he is. On the empowering song, he sings “I got out and I’m living free” and confidently states “don’t underestimate the power I keep.”
“’Gay Agenda’ is a song about radical acceptance internally and externally,” Shamir said in a statement. “We are only leasing our lives, so we gotta make it our own.”
Shamir — who has two shows in October including one with Lucy Dacus on October 20th at Philadelphia at Union Transfer — will embark on a number of North American dates with Courtney Barnett next year beginning January 31st at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina.
