WATCH THE VIDEO FOR SPECIAL GIRL
FT. SK & TOMGGG NOW
ELSEWHERE LP SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 21st
LAUNCHES OPEN WORLD TOUR WITH GIRAFFAGE
ON OCTOBER 24th WITH STOPS IN TORONTO, VANCOUVER
Toronto, ON – September 7, 2018 – Today, musician and producer, Ryan Hemsworth, shares a new single, Special Girl featuring SK & Tomggg. Special Girl follows the previously-released, Think About U ft. Joji, and Four Seasons ft. NewAgeMuzik, and is the latest offering from Ryan's upcoming LP, Elsewhere (due out September 21st via Secret Songs / Last Gang Records).
For the single, Ryan collaborated with London-based Afrobeats artist, SK, and Japanese composer, Tomggg. The visually-stunning video, which was shot in Shanghai, was directed by Noah Sheldon and features impressive choreography on a grand scale, juxtaposing itself from the monotony of everyday life in Shanghai, as a young couple celebrate and dance along to the tropical rhythm of the track. Ryan is also gearing up to tour alongside Giraffage, kicking off on October 24th in Vancouver, and playing 19 dates across North America. Tickets are available here.
For the past six years Ryan has established himself as a versatile figure in music. He has 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.
