New York’s Shura has been making all the right moves to signal that she’s back in a big way. With a new album announced for release in August, the artist is definitely ready for you to see and hear all that she’s been up to. With “religion (u can lay your hands on me),” the first single from her upcoming album forevher proves that she’s not only ready to make her mark stronger, she’s ready to get people moving as well.
Musically, the song has plenty of pop overtones and lush production touches. With neo-disco nods and dance pop nuance, Shura has no problem writing and delivering hooks here, giving you plenty to process with falsetto vocals and plenty of dance pop grooves. The video has a very different feel with nuns doing chores, getting down and even joining in on the festivities as the singer looks on.
The video can be streamed above or on YouTube, “religion (you can lay your hands on me)” can be streamed on all platforms and forevher can be pre-ordered directly from Secretly Canadian on multiple formats ahead of its August 16 release. Shura will be on tour beginning September 26 in Vancouver, Canada at Venue until November 18 in Manchester, UK at O2 Ritz Manchester.
