We’re Still Alive was released on 10/20/2020, available exclusively to stream and as a free download from the website ubu.com. The 12-track album executive-produced by Shirt’s friend and DJ for 20+ years, Darvin Silva, is the full-length follow up to Shirt’s Pure Beauty LP from 2018. Conceptually, the record marks the 10-year follow up to Tan-Face Children, an EP made by Shirt and Darvin and released in March of 2010. Written and recorded over several months in 2020 between Queens, Brooklyn, and Oakland, California, We’re Still Alive features production from Kaytranada and BADBADNOTGOOD, Aphex Twin, The Midnight Hour, Moby, Hudson Mohawke & ANOHNI, Jim-E Stack, Wax Tailor, Şahin Söğütoğlu, Gang Starr and others––all used without permission or copyright clearance. The album’s cover art, slightly altered by Shirt to show two blurry figures instead of three, is originally designed by Pierre-Louis Auvray. Also used without permission, the image is an almost exact use of Kanye West’s cover art for the now-unreleased album DONDA.
