The video for “the car” is the third and final in a European trilogy shot in Georgia that also spans previous album singles “all i do is try my best” and “as if.” The forthcoming record will also include “im nothing thats all i am,” released earlier this spring.

In celebration of the new music, glaive will embark on an extensive tour this summer with support from special guests Polo PerksOrigami Angel and Oso Oso. The run will find glaive performing across North America, including dates at New York’s Webster HallLos Angeles’ The WilternChicago’s Metro and in his hometown at Asheville’s The Orange Peel. Tickets are on sale now; see below for full routing. 

“The car was one of the only songs I didn’t write from my perspective but rather from the perspective of a friend who was cheated on,” says glaive. “I had made so many songs for the album that I was running out of personal emotions to express, and I wrote this without full context of the situation but how I would imagine and interpret it.”

WHO
Produced with previous collaborators Jeff Hazin and Ralph Castellii care so much that i dont care at all finds glaive turning inward, reflecting with blunt honesty about growing up and outgrowing his North Carolina hometown. The album is already receiving widespread critical praise from BillboardThe FADERBrooklyn Vegan and more. Ones to Watchhails “glaive is in the midst of a renaissance…with his recent string of releases, [he] is coming into his own.”
The new music follows a monumental 2022 for glaive, which began with a supporting slot on The Kid LAROI’s European tour, followed by an extensive run of headline dates across the U.K. and U.S., and the release of two singles, “three wheels and it still drives!” and “minnesota is a place that exists.”
The artist’s three EPs to date—cypress groveall dogs go to heaven (plus its deluxe edition old dog, new tricks) and theni’ll be happy with ericdoa—have received widespread critical acclaim, landing him at the top of Best Of lists from The New York TimesThe FADER and more.
Growing up in the small town of Hendersonville, North Carolina, glaive was first drawn to the sounds of radio-friendly pop songs he’d listen to in the car with his mom, before his listening soon pulled him into the nascent world of SoundCloud rap. When the pandemic hit in 2020, he spent a month indoors, in his room with black-out curtains. It was out of this period that his first songs came to be. He collaborated with friends he met online, forming musical collectives and experimenting with production. His subsequent rise was meteoric, powered by a steady stream of new music that quickly earned him acclaim and a devoted following.
