Ethiopian-Canadian Singer Ruth B. Releases Second Single “Die Fast” From Upcoming Album “Moments in Between“
Following her latest single ‘Situation’, Ruth B. unveils R&B-pop fusion “Die Fast,” the second single from her forthcoming album Moments In Between, out June 11 via Downtown Records. The new single was Executive Produced by Patrick Wimberly (Beyonce, Solange, Blood Orange, Ellie Goulding) and Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Santigold), “Die Fast” is diaristic pop that rides pizzicato strings and a skeletal beat as Ruth B. unspools a warm vocal that tries unsuccessfully to shed unrequited romantic longing.
Ruth B. is also excited to officially announce her Global Digital Tour in partnership with Moment House, sponsored by Music.com. Moment House is the premium digital live platform that connects artists and their core fans for global, elevated ticketed experiences — called Moments. Ruth will be hosting exclusive Moments for several different areas/regions: North & South America, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, and Europe, UK & Africa.
Following her gold-certified 2017 debut, Safe Haven and multi-platinum hit single “Lost Boy,” Moments In Between is a raw emotional accounting of the anxieties and uncertainty Ruth faces as a woman in her mid-twenties, giving voice to her inner strife amidst confessional lyrics, shapeshifting textures, and hazy harmonies.
Ruth shares, “Writing songs has always been therapeutic for me,” says Ruth, “and I hope that hearing my songs helps other people in the same way. Whether they’re feeling lonely or heartbroken or happy, I want them to know that someone else understands what they’re going through.”
The songs on Moments In Between showcase Ruth B.’s ability to seamlessly traverse a multitude of musical stylings, and will surely add to her >1.5 billion artist streams to date. Ruth B. credits her songwriting and storytelling abilities to her upbringing as the daughter of Ethiopian immigrants, listening to the music of her parents’ homeland alongside American icons like Stevie Wonder and Lauryn Hill.
