CAUTIOUS CLAY LANCE SON NOUVEAU SINGLE «ROOTS» DE SON PREMIER ALBUM TRÈS ATTENDU



Montréal, 24 février 2021 - Le chanteur, compositeur, producteur et multi-instrumentiste Cautious Clay (Josh Karpeh) dévoile son nouveau single «Roots»qui fait suite à «Dying in the Subtlety» et «Agreeable», ses deux derniers singles, qui combinent plus de six millions de streams.

L’artiste originaire de Cleveland, Ohio, résidant actuellement à Brooklyn, New York, a collaboré avec Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, John Legend et John Mayer. Il a déjà trois EP à son actif; TABLE OF CONTEXT, RESONANCE et BLOOD TYPE, comprenant sa chanson «Cold War», qui a reçu des éloges de Time, NPR, The New York Times, Complex et The New Yorker. La musique de Cautious Clay fusionne le R&B, le hip-hop et l'indie expérimental avec une voix audacieuse et sincère.

Le dernier single de Cautious Clay, «Roots», est maintenant disponible partout. Cette nouvelle arrive au bon moment après avoir participé à l'événement Stream On de Spotify cette semaine. Cautious Clay sera également l'égérie de la liste de lecture phare mondiale New Music Daily, en plus d’être la tête d’affiche de la liste d’écoute populaire, Superbloom, sur Apple Music. Aussi, il a eu la chance d'avoir une conversation exclusive avec l’incontournable Zane Lowe.


"Roots’ is about having an established history with someone and coming to the often-difficult realization that things ultimately will not last because of elements in the relationship that are toxic. I tried to make that sentiment known in the first verse, 'from atoms up to comets, life is never promised, you could make me wanna lie and be dishonest'. It's about wanting to put yourself out there and be emotionally vulnerable to a fault, however ultimately knowing what's best is for both people to separate and move on." Nous dévoile Cautious, au sujet de la chanson.


Depuis le début de la pandémie, Cautious Clay a également participé au projet collaboratif «Cheesin» avec Remi Wolf, Still Woozy, Sophie Meiers, Claud, Melanie Faye et HXNS afin d’amasser des fonds pour les gens durement affectés par la Covid-19. Peu de temps avant, il a sorti «Reaching (ft. Alex Isley)», qui figurait dans le premier épisode de la saison 4 de «Insecure» d'Issa Rae. La bande originale «Insecure», qui comprenait «Reaching», a été nominée pour un prix NAACP pour la bande originale / compilation de l’année.

De plus, Cautious Clay participe actuellement à la production de la deuxième saison de « The Godfather of Harlem », une série de Forest Whitaker, acclamée par la critique. Il reprend son rôle de la première saison et enregistre également la musique Jazz de l’époque pour cette série.

CAUTIOUS CLAY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “ROOTS” OFF HIS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM


Montreal, QC, February 24, 2021 – Lauded singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Cautious Clay (AKA Josh Karpeh) has released his third single, “Roots” off his highly anticipated debut album. Cautious, who has collaborated with Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, John Legend and John Mayer, previously released three EP’s; TABLE OF CONTEXT, RESONANCE and his debut, BLOOD TYPE, which included his breakout song “Cold War,” which received accolades from Time, NPR, The New York Times, Complex and The New Yorker.

Cautious Clay’s newest single, Roots will be made available everywhere today. This comes well timed after featuring in Spotify’s Stream On event this week. On Apple Music, Cautious Clay will be the face of Global flagship playlist New Music Daily, accompanied by the front cover of its leading Gen Z playlist Superbloom, in tandem with an exclusive conversation with their very own Zane Lowe.

"Roots" is about having an established history with someone and coming to the often-difficult realization that things ultimately will not last because of elements in the relationship that are toxic. I tried to make that sentiment known in the first verse, 'from atoms up to comets, life is never promised, you could make me wanna lie and be dishonest'. It's about wanting to put yourself out there and be emotionally vulnerable to a fault, however ultimately knowing what's best is for both people to separate and move on."

“Roots” follows the release of "Dying in the Subtlety” and “Agreeable," his first two singles off the album. During the pandemic, Cautious Clay also participated in the collaborative single “Cheesin” with Remi Wolf, Still Woozy, Sophie Meiers, Claud, Melanie Faye and HXNS to raise money for Covid-19 relief. Just prior, he released “Reaching (ft. Alex Isley),” which was featured within the Season 4 premiere of Issa Rae’s “Insecure.” The "Insecure" soundtrack, which included “Reaching,” was nominated for an NAACP award for Outstanding Soundtrack / Compilation Album this year.

Taking time for select acting work, Cautious Clay is currently in production on the second season of the critically acclaimed Forest Whitaker drama, “The Godfather of Harlem.” Cautious will reprise his role from the first season and create original recordings of Jazz songs from the period for use in the show.


Music by Cautious Clay combines R&B, hip-hop and experimental indie with bold, honest, and soulful vocals; a voice The New Yorker says, "seems to emote and connect without effort; it burrows warmly into acoustic guitar melodies and floats atop more maximalist backdrops." Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Cautious Clay currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
