“A vital new singer makes her debut…an emo-rap Dark Side Of The Moon …Modus Vivendi suggests Enya and Pink Floyd as much as Frank Ocean…the sound of a realist and fantasist sparring, it reflects an artist still coming into focus on her own thrilling terms.” – ROLLING STONE (4 stars)
“Shake is a shape-shifting vocalist, able to instinctively channel the angst of emo, the tenderness of gospel, and the emotionality of R&B.” – PITCHFORK
“She’s one of the most captivating, enigmatic figures today, driven on by raw talent and a forward-thinking approach that marks her as a true innovator and a crucial voice of her generation. – HIGHSNOBIETY
December 13, 2019 – New York, NY – 070 Shake – the innovative, genre-defying artist who garnered huge buzz from Kanye West’s 2018 Wyoming sessions – today announces the official release date of her highly-anticipated debut album, MODUS VIVENDI, arriving January 17, 2020 via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings. Simultaneously, Shake releases a new track and video from the album, “Under The Moon,” produced by Dave Hamelin – with additional production, mixing & mastering by Mike Dean, and video directed by Lauren Dunn. She also has announced a world tour beginning in January. (Complete itinerary below.) The album cover was painted by artist Sam Spratt in a collaboration with 070 Shake.
“Under The Moon” follows “Morrow” and “Nice To Have,” which introduced fans to a new side of 070 Shake when they were released simultaneously as the first advance tracks from MODUS VIVENDI. “Morrow” found Shake taking everything she learned during the Wyoming Sessions and transferring it to an up-tempo record that was at once rowdy and ethereal. “Nice To Have” slowed things down as she reflected on a past lover.
MODUS VIVENDI opens the next phase of 070 Shake’s journey. The album brings her reflective style to the spotlight with boundary-pushing creativity and pure emotional honesty as her compass. “I just really go with how I feel in the moment, and then that’s where the writing comes from. It’s like an ongoing disperse of words when I feel something.” In a world obsessed with consumption, Shake is a much-needed breath of fresh air, more than ready to make her impact felt through music. “I want it to make a change in the world. The agenda is bigger than just music.”
