Platinum recording artist Shim has announced a Sept. 14 release date for his self-titled solo album, “Shim,” on BFD, distributed worldwide by The Orchard.
After creating a worldwide fan base as founder and former lead vocalist for Sick Puppies, the Australia-born singer, songwriter and producer found himself back at square one, and after a couple failed attempts at collaborating again, decided to bet on himself.
“I set out to make the best music of my career—which I’ve done,“ Shim said. “For better or worse, I put everything I had to give into this album, and for the first time in my life, it doesn’t matter what the outcome is, because I couldn’t have bled anymore than I did on this music. “
“The theme of this album is about someone digging themselves out of a hole,” he said. “It’s the whole journey of doing the work to create the life you want, despite the obstacles.”
Listen to the album opener “A Brand New War” and watch the video for the debut single, “Hallelujah,” below.
