glaive shares "as if" – the first single from his debut album i care so much i don't care at all.

Produced with previous collaborators Jeff Hazin and Ralph Castelli, "as if" follows previous singles "three wheels and it still drives!" and "minnesota is a place that exists". The track begins with a sampling of actor Timothée Chalamet performing a monologue from the off-Broadway play Prodigal Son in one of his first acting roles.

'as if' is accompanied by a video directed by Adrian Villagomez.

“We made ‘as if’ in December when we thought the album was already done. For a long time, I had been making music about relationships, but I hadn’t been in a relationship in a year and a half at that point, so I was forced to look more inward,” says glaive. “This was one of the first songs where I guess I ended up talking about myself and the world from my perspective, rather than other people’s. It’s scary to be honest about who I am and for a long time, I was scared to show anyone the song. But now it’s out and the first single from the album".

The debut album announcement follows on from glaive's previous EPs – cypress grove, all dogs go to heaven (plus its deluxe edition old dog, new tricks) and then i’ll be happy with ericdoa – which resulted in a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly on "more than life".

"as if" is out now. i care so much i don't care at all, will follow later this year.
