serpentwithfeet has shared a new single, “cherubim,” produced with Katie Gately and mmph, with an official video directed by Allie Avital. It’s taken from his upcoming debut album, soil, out June 8.

“cherubim” is a “fanatical love song,” in which serpentwithfeet naively exclaims about a new wondrous man he’s fallen for. The video follows the lead single “bless ur heart.”

serpentwithfeet is an experimental R&B/gospel vocalist and performance artist whose growing body of work is rooted in dueling obsessions with the ephemeral and the everlasting—key components of his artistic journey from a childhood stint as a choirboy in Baltimore through his time at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where he studied vocal performance before relocating to New York City.

soil is described as “a return to the sensibilities and wide-eyed curiosity of his musical youth before symmetry and sterile soundscapes ruled the roost.”
