Canadian alt-rapper Shad will follow 2013's Flying Colours LP with the free Boarding Pass EP on December 1. Shad recorded the EP with longtime touring partner DJ T.Lo. We've got the premiere of first single "Hang On," which has a real golden era hip hop vibe. Here's what Shad and T.Lo had to say about it:

Shad states, "It's pretty straight-forward. Given the 'hang on' sample, I just knew I wanted to do something uplifting that reflected how I feel about these times." T.Lo adds, "The beat came together pretty quickly after a visit to Vancouver. As soon as I finished it, I knew it would be perfect for Shad."

Check that out below.

Shad also has a NYC one-off scheduled happening soon after the EP's release on December 4 at The Studio at Webster Hall with Kahli Abdu and Jay Wirth. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
