Ryan Hemsworth Releases New Single

Ryan Hemsworth shares his new single "Snow in Newark"

Following his debut album, Guilt Trips, on Last Gang Records, and his Secret Songs series launched earlier this year, Ryan Hemsworth shares his new single, Snow In Newark, featuring Dawn Golden (helmed by Dexter Tortoriello of Houses). The track is on sale worldwide and as a 7″ vinyl. He is also sharing the news of an upcoming sophomore album to be released on Last Gang Records and Secret Songs, a new imprint that will be home to Hemsworth’s various collaborations and experiments.

“I instantly loved Ryan’s beat for this song”, explains vocalist Dawn Golden. “It moves in a certain way that’s really simple and loose and still very interesting. I wanted to write something that complimented that, but didn’t overpower it with anything too heavy. It’s a sort of vignette about being on tour alone, dealing with the weird mix of calm isolation and the hyper-exposed social aspects of being on stage in front of strangers every night. It’s about the feeling of being eternally out of sync and uncomfortable and trying to find some semblance of love and home every night.”

“This song is special to me,” explains the many-sided producer. “I’m trying things at a different pace; fighting with expectations and conventional formulas. It’s been a weird time for me, so ‘Snow In Newark’ and the rest of this album are my personal reactions to the current state of electronic and rock music.”

Having originally explored his musical voice as a singer and guitarist in his teen years. Hemsworth discovered a love affair with drum loops and samples. And made R&B albums, a vast catalogue of underground rap collabos, and a string of mixes and remix work took him on the road to the four corners of the world – all becoming important ingredients to define and inform his ear. With his Last Words EP and debut album Guilt Trips, these experiences began to crystalize and form a musical landscape that is at once all encompassing and completely singular. The Secret Songs project sprouted naturally this year as a new frontier into this frame of mind; a free outlet that is all about discovery and inclusion, a place to make connections between distinct sounds from unique artists that may otherwise never happen.

Hemsworth will also be on tour in Japan and North America this fall.
