We’re a little over a week out from the release of Cerulean, the new record from Canadian singer-songwriter Ken Yates—a project that’s proven a personal milestone for the budding artist. “I feel more open than ever, at peace with where I am as an artist,” he shared of the album. “This is the first time I’ve had a real personal story I wanted to tell. It does feel like I’ve had a moment to reset my life, and now I can start to share that with the rest of the world.”
After sharing the downcast and confessional “Consolation Prize” with us back in March, Yates is debuting another new track from the project today with a live performance video for a song called “Grocery Store,” which he recently filmed on a rooftop on the west side of Toronto for “Neighborhoods.” It’s another lyrical vessel of yearning and emotional reckoning matched up with strummed acoustic guitar, further setting the scene for what Cerulean has in store. Check out the video below, and check out Yates’ upcoming tour dates here.
