"Wildfire", as Cautious Clay explains, "explores the fact that people’s intentions sometimes get lost in translation. Good intention is not always enough to prevent people’s emotions and insecurities from spiraling. Subtle signals or cues can unintentionally ignite emotions - like a bush fire."

The new track will feature on Deadpan Love alongside earlier releases "Karma & Friends", "Roots", "Dying In The Subtlety" and "Agreeable".

Deadpan Love saw Cautious Clay collaborate with co-writers including Tobias Jesso Jr. (Adele, HAIM), Jim-E Stack (Caroline Polachek, Empress Of), Daniel Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo, FINNEAS), Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Kelly Clarkson), Ammar Malik (Maroon 5, Halsey) and Sir Nolan (Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez), and will also feature collaboration with Chicago rapper Saba.

He says of the album, "Deadpan Love explores the ways I cope with the worst of what humanity has to offer. It’s about opposites - having an outer layer that’s tougher, this “deadpan” state, and an inner layer of compassion, where you’re open to being there for the people you care about. It’s this warring compassion and cynicism that has empowered me to express myself through this medium."

"Wildfire" is out now. Cautious Clay's Deadpan Love album will be released 25 June via The Orchard, and is available to pre-order now.
