Claud drops two electrifying tracks ‘Wet’ and ‘Crumbs’ from upcoming album ‘Supermodels’

Hell yeah, get ready to groove with pure delight as Claud drops a double dose of musical magic!

Prepare to be swept away by the enchanting melodies of Chicago-born singer-songwriter, Claud, as they unveil two sensational new songs, ‘Wet’ and ‘Crumbs’.

These captivating tracks are a delightful preview of Claud’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Supermodels, set to release on Friday, July 14, through the esteemed Saddest Factory Records.

This exciting release follows the tremendous success of their 2021 album, Super Monster, which garnered widespread acclaim.

Both ‘Crumbs’ and ‘Wet’ showcase the dynamic range of Supermodels. ‘Crumbs’ is a tender and evocative tune, transporting us back to the nostalgic moments that we cherish in the name of love. On the other hand, ‘Wet’ exudes an invigorating energy, propelled by infectious synths and an authoritative bass line.

These tracks follow the lead of Claud’s previous hit single, ‘Every Fucking Time’.

Reflecting on these new creations, Claud reveals, “‘Crumbs’ was born during a couple of tearful days spent indoors, while ‘Wet’ flowed effortlessly during a single lightning-fast session.

The writing process for both songs felt like dropping a boulder into a pond, causing ripples that forever changed my perception of myself as an artist. The vulnerability in my songwriting has reached new depths, evident by the tremble in my hands when I share these songs with others. I’m ecstatic to unleash ‘Crumbs’ and ‘Wet’ into the world.”

Supermodels embodies Claud’s personal journey. After the release of their acclaimed debut album, Super Monster, in 2021, Claud experienced significant life changes, including departures, losses, and the absence of once-steadfast support networks.

In response, Claud turned to their trusty acoustic guitar, a rare gem weathered by the harsh Chicago winter, and a second-hand upright piano, imperfectly tuned and missing several octaves, which found its way into their apartment.

Claud’s humble abode, adorned with the stubborn guitar and worn piano, became a vessel for the experiences that underpin Supermodels. The album, comprised of 13 soul-stirring songs, can be likened to a collection of journal entries, transcending genre boundaries with its eclectic blend of hooks and melodies that linger in the mind like cherished memories.

Approaching Supermodels with newfound depth and an invigorating sense of self-assuredness, Claud fearlessly experiments with various genres, treating them as a playground of boundless possibilities.

Despite the majority of Super Monster being crafted in their childhood bedroom, Claud has expanded their creative horizons within the intimate confines of their own space, surrounded by a dedicated team of trusted allies and collaborators.

Claud’s debut album, Super Monster, received immediate acclaim upon its release in 2021. As the flagship artist on Saddest Factory Records, Claud’s live performances have been exuberant spectacles, and they have graced the stage alongside musical powerhouses like Phoebe Bridgers, Bleachers, and Paramore. Following their support for boygenius and Le Tigre this summer, Claud will embark on a headlining tour early in the fall, spreading their musical magic far and wide.

Mark your calendars for Friday, July 14, when Claud’s Supermodels will grace the airwaves and streaming platforms worldwide. Pre-order and save the album HERE. Let Claud’s enchanting melodies transport you to a realm of pure musical bliss.
