Limited green colored vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket. Include bonus tracks, photos, and photocards. Shamir's art is a synthesis of the full spectrum of human emotion; sensual, furious, yearning, joyful. The freedom in his self produced and released Hope, although tethered through style to greats (like Miss Nina Simone, Prince, and Taylor Swift) is based almost entirely in a hyper specific, fully autonomous, embodied expression of personhood. Originally-and somewhat begrudgingly-released via SoundCloud in 2017, Hope was received with the sort of enthusiasm that marks this work as a truly iconic, world building project that only Shamir could have constructed.
