Off the heels of his Just Rap Tour with Tommy Kruise and several festival plays this summer, Ryan Hemsworth is back today to announce his forthcoming collaborative EP with Seattle-based producer Lucas. The EP, which revisits a kindred sonic palette to 2014’s Alone for the First Time, will be the first body of his own work that Ryan has released through his Secret Songs label.
Ryan’s Secret Songs label has become a home online for celebrating friends’ art and a place for highlighting under heard voices in music. Free downloads, friends only, bi-weekly. It’s actually how Lucas and Ryan first worked together — Lucas released his song “Keep U Warm” as Secret Songs 008. Now you can hear their first Taking Flight single “Angel”, which is available for streaming on the Secret Songs SoundCloud.
Taking Flight will be available for free and via digital retailers on October 9th. Check out the “Angel”, previous Secret Songs releases, full Taking Flight information, and learn more about Ryan’s collaborator Lucas here.
