Twin Shadow has released a mixtape full of unreleased, previously-untouched demo cuts. Entitled Night Rally, the project features a collection of unreleased tracks recorded between 2010 and 2014. Twin Shadow architect George Lewis Jr. was inspired to rediscover the slew of songs following his recent tour-bus accident, which he is still recovering from. The whole concept and story behind Night Rally was broken down in a statement from Lewis, which Noisey posted in their premiere. You can download the mixtape here, and read Twin Shadow’s statement on Night Rally below.

“After our April 17th bus accident the Twin Shadow family returned to their separate homes off the road. It was a painful experience that left us all feeling raw and exposed. While spending time healing and resting in my apartment in LA I started to sift through old hard drives. I found all these ideas I had nearly forgotten, most of them more realized than I remembered.

The more I dug the more I realized how much music was made in the last five years. Being home I had the time and perspective to enjoy all the little impulses, embarrassing choices, and exciting moments that I couldn’t bottle. There were also some songs that I couldn’t understand why I never finished. After listening back several times, I decided to make a small collection of the songs that stuck out. The mixtape consists of recordings from 2010 to 2014.

So here it is, a glimpse into five years of late nights, mornings after no sleep, the bad decisions, the good ones, the sobering solitude, the mistakes, the ideas lost, and the singing out of key… True demos. The mixtape is now free to download from the WeTransfer Night Rally wallpaper, and an actual cassette tape will be available to purchase only at the merch table of the Night Rally Tour shows. Thanks to everyone who showed support during this hard time. See you at the Night Rally.”
