Moses Sumney shares new single, ‘Me in 20 Years’

Ahead of the release of his forthcoming double album, græ, Moses Sumney has shared a third single from the record. Titled ‘Me in 20 Years’, this latest cut sees the artist team up with Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never for co-production duties.

‘Me in 20 Years’ sees Sumney diving further into the anxiety and uncertainty of unrequited love which he touched on with the stunning ‘Polly‘. His impeccable, heart-wrenching falsetto is grounded perfectly thanks to the thriving, shifting, thudding courtesy of Lopatin. The song swells and threatens to break, before suddenly being stripped away completely to leave Sumney deliver the final blow before the song’s end with the lyric, “Have I become the cavity I feared? Ask me in twenty years.”

The rollout for græ has seen Sumney share three equally devastating but different singles. First we saw him grapple with masculinity alongside a spectacular self-directed video in ‘Virile‘, then we were taken into his deepest thoughts with ‘Polly’. Now, with ‘Me in 20 Years’, it’s all but certain that Sumney‘s record will be in contention for many best-of-the-year lists. As a double album, the first part of græ will be dropping this February, with the second arriving in May. We can’t wait.
