Before he releases his long-awaited sophomore album, singer-songwriter Gallant has gifted fans with the project's new single "Sharpest Edges"
The Stint-produced track arrived Friday, more than two months after the Grammy-nominated artist shared the T-Pain-assisted "Gentleman" remix. It's also his first proper single since 2018's "Toogoodtobetrue" featuring Sufjan Stevens and Rebecca Sugar.
"There are two sides to every coin—a bunch of caskets buried underneath every vacation home," Gallant said about the new track. "I had problems with depression for a long time because even though you get to choose your own outlook on life, it’s hard sometimes to ignore the bad shit, the mistakes you made and the things you could have done better. It’s easier to admit the world is full of sharp edges—and to make a goal to have as many close calls as you can."
You can listen to "Sharpest Edges" now on Apple Music and Spotify, and watch the Bennett Johnson-directed video up top. Gallant's second studio album—the follow-up to 2016's Ology—is expected to drop later this year.
The artist will also provide music for the TV movie adaptation of Cartoon Network's Steven Universe. The soundtrack will be co-executive produced by Chance the Rapper and include contributions from Estelle, Aimee Mann, Uzo Aduba, and more.
