Today, North Carolina’s Tyler Ramsey shared he’s set to captivate audiences with his forthcoming studio album, New Lost Ages, scheduled to drop on Feb. 9, 2024, via Soundly Music. The album, produced by Phil Ek, known for his work with Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty, and The Shins, promises to be a genre-bending offering that traverses the realms of indie, psych-rock, and more.
In celebration of the project’s announcement, Ramsey unveiled the first single and title track, “New Lost Ages.” With a sound that artfully combines layers of guitar, synth, and piano atop a thunderous backbeat, the song sets the cadence of the entire album. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Lord Huron and Father John Misty, Ramsey’s tone strikes a balance between catchy and profound.
Speaking about the single, Ramsey reflected, “This song is about letting go of innocence and facing the reality of a society that is in decline. One that is refusing to change course or even pause itself. It’s searching for hope in all of this. It’s wanting my children to be able to experience this world with wonder and joy and not have to carry the weight of our mistakes.”
“New Lost Ages” promises to be an album of contrasts, embodying both hope and despair, shadows and light. It captures the essence of the calm that follows the storm and the dark clouds that roll back in again, as Ramsey eloquently describes it.
Fans eager to experience Ramsey’s music live will have something to look forward to in the spring of 2024. While a full album release tour is on the horizon, details are yet to be announced.
In the meantime, audiences in the Southeast can catch Ramsey at select shows, including a performance at AMERICANAFEST on Sept.22 in Nashville, Tenn. Find tickets and the most up-to-date information on his tour schedule here.
