The Sacred: Shan Vincent de Paul’s new track is about having trust issues with those you love most

Toronto, ON – Yesterday Toronto artist Shan Vincent de Paul premiered a new Kavern produced single about trust issues titled “The Sacred.”

“The Sacred” takes a look at the darker side of trust issues that people don’t like to talk about: what happens when you don’t trust the people you love the most. It’s easy enough to claim trust issues for people who don’t know (and don’t trust enough to get to know). But it’s a whole different story when you find yourself second-guessing those who are closest to you: “Lord I can’t tell who the f**k I’m supposed to put my trust in nowadays/ It’s a shame/ There’s a hungry wolf in my bed wearing sheep’s skin, sleeping with the mask of Jesus on his head.”

Shan Vincent de Paul's new track

Shan Vincent de Paul has really honed in on his own brand of relationship raps. He has a distinct psychological approach to his craft and likes to explore the human interaction – whether it’s romantic relationships, sexual relationships, or even friendships. He studies how we relate to one another, person-to-person. And he studies the aspects of human interaction that a lot of people shy away from even acknowledging. But that’s why his music always resonates.

This track comes to us as Shan is making some major waves online via his response to DJBooth tweeting about Toronto artists not supporting each other. If you haven’t given that a read yet, I highly recommend you do so. And keep it locked on Shan’s upcoming SVDP 1 project, too.
