SHAD UNVEILS HYPNOTIC NEW SONG “THE FOOL PT. 3 (FRAME OF MIND),” PRODUCED BY KAYTRANADA


"A SHORT STORY ABOUT A WAR" DROPS OCTOBER 26 ON SECRET CITY RECORDS


Today, Shad has unveiled the latest video from his upcoming hip-hop saga ‘A Short Story About A War’ (Oct 26/Secret City). “The Fool Pt. 3 (Frame of Mind)” is a hypnotic track produced by KAYTRANADA. The video, directed by Justin Broadbent, is inspired by the classical art form of the diptych, which often contained a painting of a living person next to one of someone who had died. Through highlighting dichotomies between night and day, death and life, war and peace in this song, Shad shows us that which we choose to see is just a product of perspective, or “frame of mind. ”

Says Shad, “This song is about peace. Freedom. It's meant to be kind of meditative. In the context of the album, it's the last appearance by The Fool character as the record starts to wind down. ‘Frame Of Mind’ reflects on the album's major themes  -- violence and peace -- and finds their root in our inner world.”

‘A Short Story About A War’ is a truly epic concept album with its own rich mythology – it takes place in a dystopian desert world of Shad’s own creation, where warring factions of Snipers and Revolutionaries and Stone Throwers clash.  Featuring contributions from KAYTRANADA, 2oolman of A Tribe Called Red, Lido Pimienta, Yukon Blonde, Ian Kamau, Eternia, DJ T Lo, and more, ‘A Short Story About A War is a menacing, uplifting allegory that tackles the major issues facing our society.
