Alex Cameron – Far From Born Again
Shura will tour North America this fall in support of her much-anticipated second album to be released later this year via Secretly Canadian. The dates will take her across the West Coast, through the Midwest, and wrap up on the East Coast. Pre-sale starts this Thursday, April 11th, sign up to the mailing list here for access to tickets. General sale starts this Friday, April 12th, and you can purchase tickets here.
Last month, Shura made a stunning return with “BKLYNLDN.” The song marks the start of a new chapter (musically, geographically, emotionally) for Shura. That timeless look at long-distance romantic longing – if told through the modern lens of apps, texts, and anxiety-inducing silences – it’s a cinematic, exquisitely intimate examination of what presence and absence means in modern relationships; a passionate, tactile record about connection in volatile times; and, despite its cleansed sonic palette, still the unmistakeable sound of Shura.
Today, she shares “BKLYNLDN” (i_vu London Dub) – arriving at the final destination of Shura’s original and evoking the spirit of the past, very much at the heart and soul of the capital, in an up-beat 2-step garage take by the enigmatic remixer i_vu.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has proclaimed August 30th to be Whitney Day in Chicago to celebrate the release of the band’s sophomore album, 'Forever Turned Around,' out that day. Throughout August 30th, fans will have a chance to celebrate with the band around the city.
Shura has today released second album forevher. Written primarily about Shura’s relationship with her girlfriend and their long-distance conception, forevher covers everything from the initial pull of desire to recognizing the moment when the connection develops into something scarily meaningful: it’s a classic NYC-to-London love-story, but one told through the totally modern filter of dating apps, unanswered texts, and Skype chats.
Alex Cameron releases Miami Memory, his new album and love letter to his partner, on September 13th via Secretly Canadian. Following previously released singles “Divorce” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents a new single/video, “Far From Born Again,” which “celebrates the legitimacy of the independent sex worker, and casts a light on the humans that provide the service to millions worldwide.”
Whitney - the Chicago-based band led by vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek - shares a new single/video, “Used To Be Lonely,” from their forthcoming album, Forever Turned Around, out August 30th via Secretly Canadian. It follows the previously released singles, “Valleys (My Love)” and “Giving Up.”
