Chanel Beads forthcoming album Your Day Will Come, drops on April 19th via Jagjaguwar. Chanel Beads will opening for Mount Kimbie on their spring tour.

Lavers first started writing Your Day Will Come during a period of reflection in November 2022. Stuck quarantining in his Brooklyn apartment, he found himself wanting to dig down into the core of who he truly was, apart from fleeting trends or rebounding cultural moments. So during that strange time between winter holidays, he started to write songs that wrestled with loss that rippled through his life, foundational to the way he sees himself and the way he relates to others.

The title of Your Day Will Come is another double-sided trick. It could be read as a promise of the arrival of good karma, or it could be a reminder of one’s mortality, said out of spite. Yet as Lavers unpacks the haunting feelings of the past that he must release in order to move into his future, he reminds us that grief and hope might be closer than they seem to the naked eye.
