“Special Girl” ft. SK & Tomggg
Today, musician and producer Ryan Hemsworth is sharing a new single, “Special Girl” featuring SK & Tomggg. “Special Girl” follows the previously-released “Think About U” ft. Joji and “Four Seasons” ft. NewAgeMuzik as the latest offering from Ryan’s upcoming LP Elsewhere. 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 on tour alongside Giraffage, launching on October 24th in Vancouver, and playing 19 dates across North America, concluding on December 1st in Denver.
For the past six years Ryan has established himself as a versatile figure in music. He’s 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. Elsewhere will arrive September 21st via Secret Songs / Last Gang.
