Ryan Hemsworth and Lucas team up for “Angel,” the first single off the duo’s forthcoming collaborative EP, Taking Flight EP. The track is built around a guitar riff Lucas initially wrote and sent to Hemsworth. Ryan revealed to Billboard that he loved the track so much, it ended up defining the rest of the EP. “Angel” is filled with textured layers, warm melodies, and also features additional vocals by Qrion.
I was first introduced to Lucas through Ryan sharing the rising Seattle-based producer’s take on “One For Me” featuring Tinashe, and shortly thereafter he ended up releasing “Keep U Warm” through Secret Songs. This upcoming EP release is also notable as this is the first time Ryan has released any of his own material on Secret Songs, the bi-weekly free download imprint he curates.
