This Week’s New River Music

Title: Movement
Artist: Hozier
Album: Movement – Single
Released: 2018
Hozier has a new album due in 2019 and from it comes this first single. The compelling dance video stars Sergei Polunin.

Hozier says, “I was first confronted by Sergei’s talent when I saw a performance of his set to my music in collaboration with David LaChapelle.  I believe one of the greatest things to become of your own work is for it to form part of another artist’s vision or execution. That performance itself gave rise to ideas in the song ‘Movement,’ so I was incredibly proud to work with Sergei on this video. Sergei Polunin is a once-in-a-generation talent. He’s a man of incredible skill and artistry and shows a dedication to his art form that I find inspiring. I’m thrilled to share this with everyone.”


Title: Clean Eyes
Artist: SYML
Album: Clean Eyes
Released: 2018
SYML (Brian Fennell) released this as a single in September.

“I wrote ‘Clean Eyes’ as an outlet to express my least favorite thing about myself, that I’m a cynic. I think that is one of the most ugly traits a person can have. Somehow, I found someone who loves me through my cynicism, and shows me the world through her beautiful and honest lens. I’ve been writing and producing a lot of material this year as I work towards an album. This is really the first song we approached with more of a ‘band’ mentality. It was a fun challenge because of the contrast between the intimate lyrics and anthemic choruses.”

He’s playing the Royale with Dean Lewis on March 3rd!


Title: Little Light
Artist: Amos Lee
Album: My New Moon
Released: 2018
This song, off his 7th studio album My New Moon, came about this way:

Amos met a 9 year old cancer patient, Maya, through the Melodic Caring Project. He began texting with the family, live streaming his concerts and recording songs while Maya was undergoing treatment for kidney cancer. Then he wrote this song with her in mind. It’s an optimistic story encouraging the girl, and everyone, to impress their impact on the world.
