Joel Culpepper shares new single 'Casual Lies'

With his eagerly-awaited new EP just a few weeks away, Joel Culpepper has now returned to deliver the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming collection.

The new track 'Casual Lies' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Raminta Ceponyte, and follows on from the previously shared Tom Misch collaboration 'Free' in previewing his new EP 'Happiness Is Only A Few Miles Away', which is out on the 3rd November via Beyond The Groove.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “‘Casual Lies’ is a truthful tonic to one’s self that we can fall short of getting into a habit of telling ourselves and loved ones casual lies to avoid immediate pain. The truth hurts. I feel this song provides the vehicle and place that something important has passed and is no longer present. A common and maybe familiar story and merely a statement that life does indeed go on.”
