Los Angeles-based George Lewis Jr., or better known by his stage name Twin Shadow, has been around since 2010 with his debut album Forget.
Warner Bros. Records recently announced that they've signed Twin Shadow to their roster, and will be releasing his third album in 2015.
George Lewis Jr. wrote about the WBR news, "Towards the end of the recording of the third Twin Shadow album I came into a strong feeling, a place of creative change from which I'd like to give you an uncompromised experience at every turn. In order to push in the right direction I had to put the brakes on the tour, the planned album release, and reconsider where Twin Shadow was headed. With a bit of perspective I came to realize that I was going to need help to pull off the vision for this next album.
I'm excited to announce that I've found a group of like minded people at Warner Bros. Records to help me accomplish this goal. In the interest of progress and adventure I look forward to the new relationship (and hopefully a coffee with Prince)."
Prince... you know what that means? What are the chances he'll be around on April 13th at First Avenue in Minneapolis?
