Ahead of his upcoming North American tour, Yoke Lore on Friday released a shimmering new single called "Dead Ringer."
The track arrived today with a remix by Young & Sick. It comes as Yoke Lore will be kicking off his new tour Saturday in San Diego, with a number of dates running through November.
"'Dead Ringer' is about pace. I like to move fast because I believe in progress over perfection," says Yoke Lore of the new track. "I get over things fast and like to move on to the next thing quickly. It helps me stay unattached. So that I don't get bogged down by loss or defeat ... But when you move quickly, you miss certain aspects of the journey. I could be missing out on some really wonderful information that I would get if I stopped to smell the roses once in a while. I worry that when something or someone really important comes around, I will be moving too quickly to catch it or them."
Hear "Dead Ringer" below.
