Ruth Radelet Announces Debut Solo EP, Shares Video for New Single ‘Stranger’

    Ruth Radelet, formerly of Chromatics, has announced her debut solo EP: The Other Side is set to arrive on October 7. It will include the previously shared track ‘Crimes’ as well as the new single ‘Stranger’, which is accompanied by a video directed by James Manson and shot by Freddie Whitman. Check it out below.

    “‘Stranger’ is about a specific kind of loneliness that I have only felt in Los Angeles,” Radelet explained in a statemet. “Although the song is very much about longing, it’s more about a place than a person. The lyric ‘I could never hold you in my hands’ is about the feeling of always being on the outside looking in, of the city never fully opening its doors to me.”

    The Other Side represents a side of my personality as an artist that most people haven’t seen until now,” Radelet added of the EP. “It also represents my coming out the other side of a traumatic experience, gathering what I could from ‘Before’ and figuring out how to exist ‘After.’ This record was forged in the fire of a transformative two-year period during which I lost almost everything, including my father who was a huge influence on me. Most of the songs were written just before I was caught up in a storm of big changes, and they were all finished just as life started to feel sweet again. It feels right to share some of the last chapter before moving into the next, and though itʼs a melancholy record, for me The Other Side is a step into a bigger and brighter future.”
