Following PopMatters’ July premiere of New York City singer/songwriter Mackenzie Shivers’ ballad “4th of July”, you can stream her new album, Neverland, in its entirety below. Like “4th of July”, Neverland showcases Shiver’s vocal and piano skills. The gospel flourishes in Shivers’ piano playing heighten the record’s emotional range; this music is ideal to listen to while walking through paths and roads lined with the orange leaves of fall.
Shivers says to PopMatters about the album, “The songs in Neverland largely center on coping with loss and what the word ‘home’ means to people. I think the concept of home can shift as we grow older. Is it defined by where we come from, where we live now, or simply by the people we hold dear?”
That’s a question you’ll have to find out for yourself after listening through the graceful tunes of Neverland.
Neverland is out now.
