Ry X announces new ablum and UK tour

“I think my mission statement was simply to remain vulnerable and to capture that within this album,” says Ry. “The inspirations change each time, and I always want to allow that process to be free, to draw on new ideas and sounds and instrumentation. But what feels consistently important to me is keeping a sense of rawness and honesty in the work.”

RY X has announced the release of his much–anticipated new album, UNFURL, available on 15 February 2019 via Infectious which is available to pre-order here: https://ryx.lnk.to/UnfurlPR

Ry has also shared two tracks from the album, UNTOLD and FOREIGN TIDES, which are available to stream now, and has announced an extensive international tour to accompany the release including four UK shows in February, which follow a headline London Barbican performance in October backed by the London Contemporary Orchestra which sold out months in advance.

The power of quietly intense, passionate music to pull audiences into an intimate space is something this Australia-born, Los Angeles-based singer excels at. After the breakout success of his minimalist BERLIN EP, Ry notched up a string of sold out shows across Europe, the USA and Australia in 2016.

Nurtured into shape over months of – as Ry says – “hibernation” and “emotional sweat” in the mountains north of LA, Ry’s debut album DAWN in 2016 was a sublime study in devotional song craft from a singer who seemed both awed by and in command of its elemental emotions.

Ry honours and expands on his vision with his second album. Between its rippling beats, mellifluous guitars, poised piano and questing vocals, UNFURL does what its title suggests: developing organically from Ry’s previous work, blossoming in delicate new directions while holding firm to its roots.
