A new single dropped October 22, "If This Isn't Me," along with a music video directed by Grant Reinero. "The songs take a new direction for me," Levine told the Reader, "as they are very personal and focus on my own life experiences, inspired by some recent events and hardships in my life. No plans to play these new songs live, they may just live in the recorded world. However, some members of my band Ariel Levine & Mechanical Royalty are considering coming out of hiatus and forming a new three-piece with new music."
