When SPIN spoke to Twin Shadow main brain George Lewis last year, he recalled the importance of YouTube in allowing him to fan out over performances from his musical idols. Well, now a fan just like him has captured and shared footage of Lewis performing a brand new song at Festival Nrmal in Monterrey, Mexico over the weekend. The song is called "End of the World," and after 40 seconds of very excited titter, you can watch Twin Shadow performing it in full-band form above. Though the footage isn't perfect, the track sounds like a logical extension of 2012's Confess, though with the ever-present new wave element evolving from Smiths yearning to U2 stadium-baiting. And right on time, it seems: At one point, a young woman sneaks her way onto the stage and gives Lewis a big kiss on the cheek.

The singer is still aiming to keep things intimate. In May, he launches his "True Stories" tour, each stop of which will feature either Lewis or his father sharing a story with the audience. Those dates below, followed by a Portuguese festival stop.
