Montreal producer, songwriter, and singer RYAN Playground is back to share a new song. “Almost Died” is a delicate reflection on the intensities that come with relationships. Speaking on the song RYAN explains, “‘Almost Died’ is about the vulnerability that comes with bonding over shared issues and the intense connections that can result.”
Written and composed entirely by RYAN, “Almost Died” was originally premiered on PAPER Magazine alongside RYAN’s first interview this year. In the interview, RYAN talks about her upbringing as an only child of musical parents, returning back to her roots and making herself vulnerable for her debut album – “It’s just about being free and it’s very personal to me,” says RYAN.
RYAN first garnered attention last year with her debut EP, elle, for Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs label. On elle, RYAN revealed her talents for unconventional pop arrangements and introspective songwriting. “Almost Died” is available everywhere now via Secret Songs / Last Gang.
