Cavetown Releases New Song via Sire Records

Cavetown has shared his new track, "Telescope," today on Sire Records. This is the most recent release from the 20-year-old U.K. singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, who is gearing up for a nearly sold-out North American headlining tour this Fall, kicking off October 2 in Ithaca, NY. These are the latest in a series of sold-out worldwide tours across the U.S. and Europe, including multiple night residencies in London, Los Angeles and New York City.

Since Cavetown's humble beginnings as a 15-year old releasing homemade music on Youtube, he has amassed an enormous and committed following, consisting of over 2.5M monthly Spotify listeners and 1M Youtube subscribers with over 100M video views across the platform. Earlier this year, Cavetown performed on Last Call With Carson Daly, Reading & Leeds, and most recently, three sold-out nights at London's Hoxton Hall, where he taped his recently-released live video for "Feb 14."

The son of a professional flautist and Cambridge University's director of music, Robin Skinner - who's performed under the name Cavetown since 2013 - has musical talent literally embedded in his DNA. At age 14, he started posting original songs and covers on YouTube alongside daily musings and behind-the-scenes vignettes, creating a barrier-free connection with his fans as they saw themselves in his music. His devoted and ever-growing fanbase has built and nurtured their own underground grassroots community centered around his music, lining up for hours ahead of shows, coordinating homemade art projects, and bringing their own kazoos to play along with him, made all the more moving by how organically it's developed over the years.

In 2018, Cavetown self-released his full-length debut Lemon Boy, which saw breakout success with its title track that's racked up more than 24M Spotify streams and nearly 10M YouTube views. His most recent release, Animal Kingdom, is a digital mixtape series that features new songs, covers and re-imaginings of catalog material each month along with a song from a friend or peer that he's had a hand in creating. He recently signed to Sire Records and will continue to release new music over the next several months.
