Shane has his aspirations set way beyond being the owner and founder of an independent record label. Shane keeps it all relevant and innovative in his latest project by teaming up some very talented young artists. Graphic designers and film makers alongside Shane have collectively contributed their skills, time and energy to produce Shane’s latest offering of an inner world experience.
This concept release is very timely as we know the world will operate as a new ‘normal’ going forward due to the pandemic and its restrictions affecting the music industry amongst others. As an artist, Shane has adapted yet again, his innovation and desire to keep producing exceptional music has not waivered, his drive always includes satisfying his loyal fan base. Continuing their belief in Shane, ellesse has partnered with Shane to ensure his latest concept is released, this, his first ever virtual tour and more especially, of his most loved music from his mixtape DarkMoonFlwr.
A selection of “fan favorite” tracks were singled out from the acclaimed mixtape to compile a series of Live Performances of DarkMoonFlwr.
This due to the fact that Shane was not able to tour and perform DarkmoonFlwr Tour, scheduled for this year. The compilation of performances have been structured as Visual Album to premiere exclusively on Apple Music as an extended narrative to Shane’s interview on “Rap Life” with their very own Beats 1 Radio host Ebro Darden.
The compilation consists of 7 Live Performances that take place in a simulated world herein referred to as “Xenergy”. According to the artist, “Xenergy” is described as “a meditative space in time, which prevails in the mind state of one who has found a balance between chaos and peace”. Each of the songs are thus performed in a different scenario, drawn from the archive of his memories of feeling a sense of loss, pain, hope, inspiration and gratitude – all expressed in the making of DarkMoonFlwr.
Additionally, as an incentive to reveal a teaser for his upcoming body of work, Shane Eagle has included one unreleased song titled “Racks Talk” prod. by Gemini Maejor in “Xenergy” for his fans to enjoy as he enters the next phase of career.
The brand ellesse never ceases to be impressed by the energy, commitment and devotion Shane has for his craft.
Since is childhood, Shane has been an ellesse fan and completing the circle of association, has been an ellesse Brand Ambassador since the early days of his rise to fame in his performce career. Yellow, his first album, set the relationship in motion. We believe Shane Eagle fans will love his latest project and we wish him well.
