Cautious Clay Announces Date for Debut Album ‘Deadpan Love’

Cautious Clay has recently announced that his debut album “Deadpan Love” will be released on the 25th of June. The album is now available to pre-order here.

To celebrate the announcement, and to give music lovers a snippet of what’s to come, Cautious Clay also dropped a new single titled “Karma and Friends”. If that wasn’t enough, we were also treated to a captivating music video for the track! You can now watch the music video via YouTube below.

“Deadpan Love” will see R&B, hip hop and indie pop influences throughout the track list, as well as the sophisticated songwriting and jazz vibes Cautious is so well-known for. The album has a long list of exceptional songwriters that co-wrote some of the songs with the singer himself. These songwriters include Tobias Jesso Jr. (Adele, HAIM), Jim-E Stack (Caroline Polachek, Empress Of), Daniel Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo, FINNEAS), Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Kelly Clarkson), Ammar Malik (Maroon 5, Halsey) and Sir Nolan (Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez), plus a standout collaboration with Chicago rapper Saba. You can tell that an album is going to be an absolute work of art just by looking at the team that helped create it.

When talking about the album, Cautious Clay explains;

“Deadpan Love explores the ways I cope with the worst of what humanity has to offer. It’s about opposites—having an outer layer that’s tougher, this “deadpan” state, and an inner layer of compassion, where you’re open to being there for the people you care about. It’s this warring compassion and cynicism that has empowered me to express myself through this medium.”

The singers’ breakout single “Cold War” was released three years ago. Since then, Cautious has been on a roller coaster ride! He has since released three successful EP’s – Table of ContextRESONANCE, and debut Blood Type – that have received high praise from major media outlets as well as fans. His songs have also been on soundtracks for some of the most popular films and TV shows including Olivia Wilde’s “Booksmart“, Issa Rae’s “Insecure”, and Selena Gomez’s “13 Reasons Why.”

Cautious is no stranger to the music industry. He has worked with some of the biggest names in todays music scene. He was also asked personally by FINNEAS for a remix of Billie Eilish’s single “Ocean Eyes,” his music has been sampled by Taylor Swift’s fantastic album “Lover,” and has written songs for the iconic John Legend and John Mayor. It’s fair to say, he is quite notable around town.

“Karma and Friends” will be joining the track list for “Deadpan Love.” The full track list can be found below. To keep up to date on future releases, be sure to follow Cautious Clay on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
