Today, musician and producer, Ryan Hemsworth, is sharing a new single, Think About U featuring Joji, and officially announcing his third studio album, Elsewhere. Think About U follows the previously released Four Seasons ft. NewAgeMuzik as the latest offering from Elsewhere and is accompanied by a surreal animated video directed by techgod. Watch the music video for Think About U featuring Joji.
For the past six years Ryan has established himself as a versatile figure in music. He’s gained a reputation as an adept tastemaker with a golden ear for talent, and an inventive producer capable of crafting unique soundscapes for pop stars and underground talents alike. Elsewhere is the first full length Hemsworth will release since 2014’s Alone For The First Time. Since his second album was released, Ryan has toured the world multiple times over, put out a collaborative EP in 2016 with producer Lucas, developed his Secret Songs label, and produced music for artists across many genres of music.
Ryan has been working quietly on his solo music through his travels over the past couple of years – exploring different styles and forms. The result of this two year long process is an album that is truly a global effort, featuring artists from across the planet and one that doesn’t fit into any singular box sonically. A progressive effort from the musician that pushes his own boundaries as an artist but fits perfectly into the Ryan Hemsworth catalogue. Elsewhere will arrive September 21st via Secret Songs / Last Gang.
More on Ryan Hemsworth by David Jeffries
Blurring the lines between hip-hop, R&B, and indie pop, Canadian DJ and producer Ryan Hemsworth has worked with the likes of Lana Del Rey, Shady Blaze, Quadron, and Tinashe while maintaining a similarly collaborative solo career. Raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Hemsworth was attending the city’s University of King’s College when, while sitting in class, he saw one of his bedroom productions posted on the website of The Fader. Ecstatic and encouraged, the producer sent his tracks to Shady Blaze of the Bay Area’s Main Attrakionz crew, and the two began a professional relationship. Hemsworth became Attrakionz’s constant engineer and occasional producer, which opened up doors for work with Deniro Farrar, Sole, and others, while Quadron and Lana Del Rey hired him for remix work.
