Naeem (formerly known as Spank Rock) has just announced his new alias and shares the first song from this new chapter. The frantic sounding track “Sway(e)d” was released last week via Boysnoize Records. Earlier this year, Bon Iver brought Naeem on stage at Bonnaroo to debut three new songs from the project.
“Sway(e)d” marks the first official release, and is reminiscent of the old Spank Rock sound but tackles the feelings of paranoid confusion, desperation and aggression felt globally these past few years. It’s a call on listeners to lift up the downtrodden.”
