Alt/pop band Cub Sport announce their third studio album Cub Sport today, which will be released on January 18, 2019. The self-titled record will feature lead single “Sometimes” as well as another fourteen new tracks, including collaborations with Mallrat and Cloud Control’s Al Wright. The album was primarily recorded and produced by frontman Tim Nelson, including tracks co-produced with Golden Vessel and Calvin Valentine. Cub Sport will be released globally, and available digitally and physically on the band’s own label Cub Sport Records (via MGM and Believe).
While previous album BATS captured a very transformative time in Tim’s life, chronicling his coming to terms with and embracing his identity, the new album is the product of Tim activating all the lessons learned during the process.
Nelson said this on the inspiration behind the record:
“This record lays me bare but I can’t wait to share it because I truly believe it’s going to take you somewhere else. The past 12 months has felt like the most transformative year of my life and I’ve been fortunate enough to have many of you as a part of the journey. This album captures everything you saw happening as well as everything else that was happening that you couldn’t see. It hasn’t been an easy year but I’ve grown so much, learned so much and loved so much. This album is about facing inner fears, living your truth, harnessing your power, being yourself, believing in yourself, loving yourself and healing yourself. “Cub Sport” by Cub Sport has grown from love, self-belief and never giving up. This record has completely opened me up to the universe around me and within me, something I hope it will do for you too.”
