Alex Cameron Presents “Far From Born Again,” New Video / Single From Forthcoming Album, Miami Memory

Alex Cameron releases Miami Memory, his new album and love letter to his partner, onSeptember 13th via Secretly Canadian. Following previously released singles “Divorce” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents a new single/video, “Far From Born Again,” which“celebrates the legitimacy of the independent sex worker, and casts a light on the humans that provide the service to millions worldwide.” The track lays out the album’s worldview, rising towards an exalting onomatopoeic chorus between Cameron and the enthused sax of his business partnerRoy Molloy. The Ashley Connor-directed video features various members of the sex work community, and includes an intimate interview where they share candid sentiments about the industry.

Cameron elaborates: “‘Far From Born Again’ is a song about the independent sex work industry; its workers, and the dialogue surrounding their community. Not to be confused with sex trafficking or forced prostitution, independent sex workers set their own rates, and choose their clients. The song was a moment for me to clearly express my stance on the job and the people that do it. I support sex workers, I know many of them, I believe that educating the public on its very existence is extremely important. Writing the song was also a chance to speak directly to those who oppose it — men in parliaments and senates across the world, forced to maintain a global puritan standard to uphold a dubious political status quo at the cost of providing legislation that could well lead towards the well-being of the many sex workers across the world.

Across Miami Memory, a tender, vulnerable, at times lustful dedication to his partner, Cameron’s flair for narrative and character are on full display, yet, for the first time, the most frequent narrator is himself. Throughout, Cameron sings with stunning sincerity and his veracious brand of wit of his relationship and transition into familial life. He largely turns the lens away from the men on this album, and instead focuses on the voices and influence of the powerful women in his life.

Miami Memory is Cameron’s most musically expansive LP. Though remnants of his synth-driven earlier work sneak in, the bulk of it revels in the emotional drive of classic rock. Produced byJonathan Rado (Weyes Blood, Father John Misty), recorded and mixed by Marta Salogni (Björk, Kelela), the album is warm and anthemic, driven by Molloy’s sax, bass, guitar, and layers of organ.
