Four years after Each Other, Canadian singer-songwriter and musician Aidan Knight has announced the release of a new album. Aidan Knight is out on August 28th via Next Door Records. We already shared “Rolodex”; “Veni Vidi Vici” is a new excerpt and comes with the official video directed by Ft. Langley.
Speaking about the new single, Knight says: “This was an instrumental demo I made for a band (funnily enough, that Oliver was singing in) but I never showed anyone because we stopped playing shows. I wrote the lyrics over the demo in between pouring a new cement floor in the basement and was thinking about how sweet and wonderful trans and non-binary people are, and how shittily they get treated by conservative losers who sell brain pills online. Actually, not just them, but by the government and sports and media portrayals and comedians and JK Rowling – The list goes on. Just… let people express their gender how they want? Is that so hard?”
“The bathroom stuff… I truly hate it. Conversion therapy is fucked. Everything about how restrictive and stubborn some people are being right now just bothers me on a level.. I don’t know.. I hope it’s something that changes during our kid’s lifetime. To be honest, I highly doubt that the trans community really needs some outsider cis guy singing for them, but I love them and support them and will always fight for them if they need me for anything. You can quote me on that: Trans Rights.”
