Knifeplay have previewed their forthcoming LP Animal Drowning with another single, ‘Ryan Song’. Following lead single ‘Promise’, the track arrives with an accompanying video directed by Ben Turok. Watch and listen below.
Talking about the new song, songwriter Tj Strohmer explained in a statement: “This song is about a friend who died young. He was a gifted writer and an incredible, one of a kind person who judged no one. Yet he was deeply misunderstood by most and lived with a lot of pain. A late-night conversation with a mutual friend inspired me to write something that was really about him, rather than my selfish feelings on his passing. Obviously, I will never know for sure if these words actually would have resonated with him, but I did my best with what I do know and I think the feelings expressed in this song are things anyone can relate to.”
Animal Drowning is due for release on October 19 via Topshelf Records.
