Alex G Releases New Single “Cross the Sea”

Alex G shares his new single “Cross the Sea,” off his forthcoming ninth studio album God Save the Animals, due out September 23. “Cross the Sea” comes via a video by the artist Elliot Bech.


God Save the Animals was co-produced and mixed by Jacob Portrait and features the previously released tracks “Runner” - hailed as an “inarguably one of his best” by Pitchfork - and “Blessing,” which was praised by the New York Times as “eerie, hypnotic and, somehow, strangely moving.”

Alex G made his late night television debut last week, performing “Runner” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Watch the performance HERE.

Alex G will embark on a North American headlining tour this fall that includes Los Angeles’ The Wiltern and multiple nights at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel, Chicago’s Thalia Hall, Boston’s Paradise Rock Club and D.C.'s 9:30 Club and caps off with hometown shows at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer. All dates are below and tickets are available here

Alex G God Save The Animals

Album | 23rd September 2022

“God” figures in the ninth album from Philadelphia, PA based Alex Giannascoli's LP’s title, its first song, and multiple of its thirteen tracks thereafter, not as a concrete religious entity but as a sign for a generalized sense of faith (in something, anything) that fortifies Giannascoli, or the characters he voices, amid the songs’ often fraught situations.

Beyond the ambient inspiration of pop, Giannascoli has been drawn in recent years to artists who balance the public and hermetic, the oblique and the intimate, and who present faith more as a shared social language than religious doctrine.

As with his previous records, Giannascoli wrote and demoed these songs by himself, at home; but, for the sake of both new tones and “a routine that was outside of my apartment,” he asked some half-dozen engineers to help him produce the “best” recording qualitywhatever that meant. The result is an album more dynamic than ever in its sonic palette.
