Each deals with a serious life-shift...

Lupin has shared two potent new songs, 'Vampire' and 'Murderer'.

The project is helmed by Jake Luppen, who first rose to acclaim as a member of Hippo Campus.

This solo endeavour touches upon matters personal, with Lupin dealing in doses of stark honesty.

He says: “With this record I wanted to get to the point, and say how things were, as opposed to dancing around them.”

A full album is incoming, with two new songs leading the way. 'Vampire' deals with Jake's experiences after being told he had a lump in his brand...

"I was fully under the impression that I was dying when I wrote this – I had gotten a CT scan a couple weeks before that revealed a mass in my brain, which led me to believe that I had brain cancer or some form of Parkinson's. When you’re reminded of your morality there’s a recklessness that creeps up. I found myself willfully doing things I knew I would end up regretting."

Meanwhile 'Murderer' tackles the subject of ending a long term relationship, and trying to move on. He adds: "I had been living alone in a house that I used to share with my ex, so the lyrics were inspired by all of the things she left behind. One day I literally packed everything that reminded me of our relationship into boxes and shoved them in my closet. It felt like a funeral."

Tune in now.

'Lupin' will be released on October 9th.
