Moses Sumney shares his debut album Aromanticism. The new 11-track album features previously released singles "Doomed" and “Quarrel,” and follows up Sumney's 2016 EP Lamentations. His new album is what the L.A.-based artist considers a rejection of typical romanticism.

“I wanted to have these songs about isolation and sadness, which there’s tons of in the world, but be able to put them in context, to point in a specific direction towards something that’s never talked about,” the 26-year-old recently told The FADER in an interview. Sumney also shared a poem earlier this week about his new project on social media. In it he explains his personal relationship with the term aromanticism, and finding space for it to be understood in a world that is wrapped up in conventional notions of romance and love.
