Stream a New Song from Shamir, a 19-Year-Old Disco Prince


19-year-old Shamir Bailey is like some Studio 54 prodigy birthed intact from a disco ball, with a voice as shiny and piercing as any of the most emotive soul vocalists; on a new track, “I Know It’s A Good Thing,” he does epic things with house and disco, subverting the gospel roots of classic dance music so that they feel fresh and new and weird all over again. The track was produced by Nick Sylvester and is part of an EP out June 11 on Godmode called Northtown, which will include the previously released “If It Wasn’t True,” as well as a Lindi Ortega cover. Here’s hoping they’re all this glamorously danceable.
