Smith is currently readying his new project Cool Tapes Volume 3, which is the follow-up to 2014’s The Cool Cafe: Cool Tape Vol. 2. “It’s kind of bringing all my fans who have been with me from the beginning, since before ‘Icon,’ before SYRE, and kind of updating them onto everything that’s been happening,” Smith revealed.

“But with that being said, this is also a prequel before SYRE. So it’s kind of taking place when I’m like 15, going all the way up until 17 and how did SYRE get trapped in the sunset? How did all that happen? Why did it happen? Where’s your friends? Where’s everybody else? Tell us the story before you get trapped in this Inception purgatory.”

During the interview, Smith also talked about the challenges of recording during the quarantine. “It’s really hard because you can’t get into the studio with anybody, and you can’t even get into the studio at all,” Smith said. “So I have to record being inside of my house, and then the engineer has to engineer me from his house, and he’ll use this app to control my computer. So it’s like I’m recording the whole album by myself.” Listen to “Cabin Fever” below.
