It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Shad, but the Toronto rapper – who you might recognize as the host of the Netflix Original Hip-Hop Evolution docuseries – is officially back with the release of his new single, “Out of Touch.”
Featuring pHoenix Pagliacci, the song is Shad’s first new piece of music since 2018’s A Short Story About A War and the first taste of the new music he’ll be releasing later this yer on Secret City Records.
“‘Out of Touch’ is basically the thesis statement for this upcoming collection,” explains Shad. “It’s about how our individual sense of wholeness can’t be disentangled from our collective well-being. It’s about the idea that we belong to each other.”
Released with a matching video, the R&B-spiked track can be heard through its Justin Broadbent-directed video below.
