Shane Eagle is releasing a visual album on the 16th of October.

Watch a performance of 'Up 1' by Shane Eagle from his upcoming visual album 'Xenergy: The Final Saga'.

From his upcoming visual album titled Xenergy: The Final Saga, Shane Eagle releases a live performance of the song "Up 1". The song, which features Lute, appears on the South African rapper's latest mixtape, Dark Moon Flowr, released in 2019.

"Up 1" was created as an expression for the loss of a loved one that occurred while the rapper was on tour in Europe with Bas from Dreamville in 2019. The expression of "Up 1" represents the idea of turning your losses into victories, a concept many people have had to grapple with as the year 2020 forced them to see the silver lining in loss.

Shane Eagle raps in the second verse:

"Loneliest hours are when I'm all by myself/ When no one can help, scream at the top of my lungs/ To see if God hear me, maybe know the pain that I felt/ I need to find my groove/ And you can dance with me if you come to"

In true Shane Eagle style, the visuals show him as a loner in a galactic world. Visual effects, which he uses a lot in his visuals, enhance the viewing experience and the viewer can find themselves absorbed and lost in Shane's world.

The series of live performances of songs from Dark Moon Flowr will be packaged as a live album consisting of seven songs which are fan-favourites. The album is released in light of the DMF Tour which didn't happen because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pre-order/pre-add Xenergy: The Final Saga on Apple Music and stream the "Up 1" performance.



Xenergy: The Final Saga will be released on the 16th of October.
