in 2 months i'll be releasing my second album as proms, it's called gone now. gone now is a retrospective look at loss and in accordance with the webster definition of retrospection it's a look backward but in direct opposition to that it's a look forward too. it's a story of grieving and being grieved.
i wanted it to sound like sitting shiva in a john hughes film. i think it does. lots of blood and sweat and tears and vomit went into this one and i hope you're ready to taste it. more info upcoming. for now here is the tracklist and a heartfelt thanks to my friends.
i love every last one of you.
1. dream of mickey mantle
3. hate that you know me
4. don't take the money
5. all my heroes
6. everybody lost somebody
7. let's get married
9. i miss those days
10. nothing is u
11. i'm ready to move on / mickey mantle reprise
12. foreign girls
oh yeah p.s. it's a visual album.

A VISUAL ALBUM? BEEEEEEEYONCE?
Why am I turned on by this?
being invited to a writing camp for beeeeeeeeyonce is the ultimate goal but for now i have to settle for emulating her by taking an increasingly exhaustive series of dance lessons... seriously though when i say "visual album" what i mean is "there will be a video for each song and there is a cohesive visual theme that i, as a male artist, am not really accustomed to presenting to the general public because unlike pop girls i'm not expected to have 'eras' every time i cut a record but it's really not that epic so please don't be disappointed when these videos fall short of the outrageously high standard set by women artists"
Who are the collabs?
azure emile haynie tom krell julia michaels carly rae jepsen greg kurstin organized noize eve evans ooooh boy lots of people i'm forgetting i'm sorry it's 2am in my timezone (don't know where you are but i hope it's not 2am there and if it is then you should go to bed, don't be like me, don't be the guy on instagram at 2am speaking in the third person and answering things he's not mentally fit to answer)
AYYYYYY IS THIS A Q&A? I'LL BITE DUDE WHEN ARE WE GETTING THE FIRST SINGLE?
i think in accordance with the "visual album" bylaws we're going to release singles alongside videos so as soon as that's done then it's done it's in the can it's headed to a small screen near you preferably an early edition chromebook that you have to strategically tilt in the dim overhead light of your nearest crawl space to better see what's going down
ok but where the fuck is
annie is a fucking genius and a very big deal so there's lots of different swiveling pieces and turning cogs and lit up ferris wheels involved in that equation. i'm not the only person she's working with, so there's that to consider. but hopefully you'll be getting lp2 soon. i can't speak for her but i consider these records to be first cousins created in near synchronicity
so eve sings on this record........ yuck
no singing but also go fuck yourself
Hey man, how about you just release it now so I can sleep at night, thanks. Can we get any tidbits? Favorite lyrics? Best song? Anything?
all the hope i had when i was young / i hope i wasn't wrong
lmao please tell me the girl from rollercoaster is coming back to keep beating your ass
close but not exactly but really close really really really really almost uncomfortably close to the point where i wonder if my creativity only stretches as far as three years at any given time
I would let you bash my brains in and fuck my gaping eye socket
I CANNOT BE THE ONLY ONE WHOSE NIPS COULD CUT DIAMONDS LOOKING AT THIS JFC
