RELEASE // Ryley Walker’s New Album, ‘Golden Sings That Have Been Sung’, Out Today


How’re you doing? Did you know that Ryley Walker‘s new album, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, is out today? Feeling better now?

Sunny and shimmering, this record’s not unlike its cover (pardon the cheese), nor is it unlike a warm Chicago evening. Produced by Wilco multi-instrumentalist (and fellow Chicagoan) LeRoy Bach, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung is very much born of the windy city. “The Roundabout” calls out Ryley’s favorite local watering hole, a handful of Chicago players appear on the record.

While tethered to this place he calls home, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung carves out its own microcosm. As The New York Times aptly put it, “His songs are rooms to poke around in, rustling the curtains.” So come on in. You can stream the album in full or purchase a copy below.

Don’t miss out on the deluxe bundle (2xLP with bonus tracks and ltd. edition color vinyl) – if that’s your bag.

Ryley will play two record release shows – one tonight (Friday, Aug. 19) at Rough Trade East in London, and one at the Empty Bottle in Chicago on Thursday Aug. 25. Shortly after he’ll embark on a seemingly un-ending world tour. Scroll down for the full list of dates!
