Cavetown Launches New Album ‘worm food’

It's out on November 4th...

Cavetown will release new album ‘worm food’ on November 4th.

The Cambridge songwriter has spent time fine-tuning the material, with the incoming LP marking his first in over two years. Out on November 4th, ‘worm food’ features a plethora of new ideas, and it’ll be accompanied by a full UK tour.

Available to pre-order now, ‘worm food’ is led by new song ‘1994’ which is driven forwards by Cavetown’s tender, inspired vocal. So open and empathetic, the song deals with self-acceptance, and self-love; “I’m tryna love the person I was when I was born / Hating on a kid doesn’t serve me anymore…”

Blending this riveting word play with some of his best ear-worm melodies to date, ‘1994’ seems to seep down into your subconscious on first play. The songwriter – real name Robin Skinner – comments…

1994’ is about dealing with perceived guilt and how it can become over-exaggerated in my head. I’m working on defining the line between what’s really wrong in a situation versus what is made up in my head, because it’s the parts that aren’t real that I end up feeling quite guilty about.

The lyrics are a message to myself, to help me see that there’s still a child inside of me that is deserving of love and care. The line ‘Say you’re coming around / I need you lately everything’s been getting me down’ is about feeling comforted by isolating myself, but learning to be comforted by the presence of someone else.

Tune in now.
