RY X - Blood Moon - Out Now
New Video For 'A Thousand Knives' Released Today
 RY X Produces Track 'Sticky' On New Drake Album
North American Tour This Fall

June 17, 2022 -  New York, NY: RY X releases his critically acclaimed third studio album Blood Moon today. The multifaceted, transcendental set features thirteen beautifully arranged songs which sees RY X meditate upon the relationships he has experienced over the years. From that introspective angle, the singer, songwriter and producer has crafted a philosophical collection which observes and asks questions regarding an integral aspect of the human condition. RY X also brings his production skills to Drake's new album out today on the track 'Sticky,' collaborating with producer Gordo

RY X further brings Blood Moon under focus with its new track ‘A Thousand Knives’. Multilayered vocal harmonies rise in a glistening cathedral of sound, creating an illusion in which RY X appears to be leading an entire congregation of voices. Initially the production is sparse, accompanied by little more than a solitary acoustic guitar. But then in a trademark RY X twist, he takes it somewhere unexpected as beats, both manipulated and organic, march to attention. The atmosphere is further colored by synth textures that lurk deep within the mix. The song is accompanied by another visually striking clip released today. This video follows last month's release of 'Spiral' directed by acclaimed photographer Rob Woodcox garnering nearly 600k views so far.

RY X says, “‘A Thousand Knives’ was one of the first songs I wrote and finished for the album. I felt an immediate kinship with it, a connection that stays with me still. It took on the shape of a revelatory lament of love, almost in premonition form around a love that wasn’t meant to be, but one that carried deep weight and gravity. As I leaned in to record it I knew I wanted it to express both the rawness and the beauty my heart felt about the situation I was swimming in. 

I tracked the guitar and vocal live in one take through an old Studer desk, carrying all the hiss of analogue weight with it, then built stacks of vocals and synth drones around it. I layered flamenco-style claps and percussions then built drum machine sequences and sounds to deepen its expression. I asked dear old loves to sing it with me and I like that it is now impressioned with all of that essence as it goes into the world.”
