We're still a few months off from when Skylar Spence drops his brand new album Prom King (out 18 September via Carpark), but if its lead single 'Can't You See' and new track 'Affairs' are any indication, it's going to be one of the year's best pop records. Where the former of the two songs is an adrenaline-laced sugar rush of 80's nostalgia-pop, 'Affairs' is much more laid back and dreamy. In a press release, he said the song is about "a dream about running into someone I used to be close to and they didn't recognize me. I felt like I had to put on a disguise to salvage that relationship, and in the end I didn't have the ability to carry that on."

To coincide with the release of 'Affairs' he's also announced his Prom King 2015 fall tour, which will be his first tour performing with a full band. The entire list of dates can be found after the track, and he'll be joined by Kero Kero Bonito for the west coast gigs.
