Cautious Clay has been on our radar as an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist with a gorgeous voice since his ultra-successful 2018 EP Blood Type. But despite teasing his next album on social media, we haven’t heard anything from him in 2021—until now.
Cautious Clay has released his first new music of the year in the form of a melodic, 90s influenced ballad called “Roots,” out today. This new track solidifies the more confident, laid back sound he established with the first two singles from his upcoming album (a project he’s been teasing on his socials for the past couple months).
With his signature, floating vocals, Clay sings about a relationship with someone who he wants to trust, but ultimately realizes he needs to put his walls up and take a step back.
We can’t wait for his album, but in the meantime, we’ll be playing this track on repeat. You can check it out below. Enjoy!
