Juan Wauters announces new album with Mac DeMarco collaboration "Real"

03 February 2021, 16:20 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Juan Wauters is back with news of his upcoming album Real Life Situations, and has shared Mac DeMarco collaboration "Real" to accompany the announcement.

"Real" is the second track to be shared from Wauters' new album, following last month's Nick Hakim and Benamin collaboration "Presentation".

Wauters' latest release marks his first collaboration with DeMarco, and follows his appearance on Myd's "Moving Men" last year.

Wauters says of DeMarco, "Mac and I met in 2013 when our label Captured Tracks (we were both on the label then) thought it would be a good idea that we meet and do a song. We met and recorded Beatles songs. The tape machine we were working with broke and the songs were never recovered. After that, we never collaborated in any serious way. When I reached out to Mac about the new project I was doing, he was down since the beginning. I happened to be going to LA so we did it at his studio. Mac provided a really safe place to bounce ideas off of each other. We tried a lot of new things and we ended up with this track so special. The song put an end to that awaited collaboration that was the initial impulse behind us meeting and forming a friendship that stood in time."

Real Life Situations will follow Wauters' 2019 album Introducing Juan Pablo, and features collaborations with Peter Sagar (AKA Homeshake), Cola Boyy, El David Aguilar, and more.
