The road to Serpentwithfeet’s next album, Deacon, gets shorter. The genre-blending artist has released a new track titled “Same Size Shoe.”
The soft R&B song hears the Baltimore-born artist’s dreamy soul bleeding through a lush-focused production to share his dating preference. Serpentwithfeet notes in a press release, “I prefer to date and love on Black men. I don’t want to be with anyone who can’t go to my barber or walk a mile in my shoes.”
“Same Size Shoe” feeds the soul of Black men, within the LGBTQ+ community, who desire to experience unabashed love with another Black man. His illustrative voice and add-ins of Black English used in everyday speaking to spread good news make this an instant favorite.
“I originally approached this project wanting to make something that felt very sensuous. Something a lot softer, a lot more gentle than my previous work,” serpent said about the new album. “I wanted to create something that felt calm and restrained. This was my way of tapping into the energy many deacons possess.”
