UK’s breakout indie-pop artist, Cavetown has just released his major label debut album called Sleepyhead, with hand-painted cover-art by the artist himself, out now!

Written, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Cavetown, in the bedroom of his London home, the 11-song collection includes recently released song “I Miss My Mum” and lead single, “Sweet Tooth.”

On Sleepyhead, Cavetown focused his energy into what really moves fans of his heart-filling indie charm – the songs themselves. Occasionally lighthearted, largely poignant and always authentically him. He explains in a statement: “Ultimately, everyone has the same struggles when we boil it down, even if the details are different. That’s what I’m trying to get across with my music. It’s basically just me telling myself what I need to hear.”

Cavetown wrote “I Miss My Mum” while on his last tour but acknowledged how relevant the songs central theme is in light of what is happening around the world right now, saying: “Times like these can be real eye openers to what's really important to us. I wrote this a while ago, while feeling Mum-sick on tour, but is relevant right now for many of us. Hold ur loved ones close! Make time to call your parents. Check on your friends. Wash your hands.” 

Since launching Cavetown at just 14, the singer – real name Robin Skinner – has taken the internet by storm, racking up 250 million Spotify plays and 1.15 million YouTube subscribers with his unassuming-yet-captivating personality and original, self-recorded music. Skinner’s 2018 self-released debut album, Lemon Boy landed him on stages around the world, including sold-out headline performances at venues like Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre and New York City’s Webster Hall.
