Chelsea Lee, her husband Spencer Ernst, and his twin brother Max Ernst – had big plans for 2020. The band was set to continue building on the momentum of “Trampoline” with international tours and festival dates, but as with many artists, the pandemic changed everything.
For the first time in years SHAED had the opportunity to slow down, refocus themselves as artists, and put down their roots at home. Through deep introspection in a vulnerable time, the trio discovered a wealth of strength and creativity that inspired “No Other Way” and paved the way for their forthcoming debut LP.
‘No Other Way’ is the first track from their upcoming album, which lands April 16th next year. The track is produced by the band and 2x GRAMMY Award-winning producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Vampire Weekend, Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen). The track is an anthem about appreciating living in the moment, even through challenging times, featuring lyrics like, “We could die a million ways, but we’re alive another day.”
“These past 6 months have been a struggle for us all, filled with anxiety, disappointment, and uncertainty. We wrote this song as a reminder to live in the moment, which is the only thing we can control.” – SHAED
