Alex Cameron forces us to witness his new album, coincidentally titled Forced Witness

A-HA! You have clicked on the link to this story, and are thereby FORCED to WITNESS the announcement that Alex Cameron has a new album coming out this September. Coincidentally enough, it’s called Forced Witness. Funny how things work out like that sometimes, huh?

Recorded in Berlin, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Forced Witness is Cameron’s second album, following Jumping the Shark, which was self-released in 2013, and subsequently re-issued by Secretly Canadian last year. It features contributions from the likes of The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, who co-wrote and performs on “Runnin’ Out of Luck,” as well as Angel Olsen, who duets with Cameron on “Stranger’s Kiss” and performs background vocals on the album’s lead single “Candy May.”

Forced Witness will force its way into the marketplace on September 8 via Secretly Canadian, and you must click here if you want to pre-order it. Also, it’s imperative that you watch the video for the aforementioned “Candy May” — which features Cameron doing a lot of driving, walking, and parking-lot-dancing — down below. Cameron also has a huge slate of upcoming tour dates, and you’ve got no choice but to view them down below too (following the compulsory album art and full tracklisting perusal, of course). Then and ONLY THEN will your sentence of forced witnessing be complete.
