OTR Shares Bright, Ethereal Single “Midnight Sun” Ft. Ukiyo + Announces New Album

|||,

Over the past few years OTR has continued to impress us time and time again. With singles like “Heart” & “Drive” still providing a soothing sonic experience to listeners far and wide, today we’re beyond excited to find the Atlanta-based artist has announced his debut album via a new single + video, “Midnight Sun” (feat. Ukiyo).

This latest offering perfectly exemplifies what we love most about OTR. Having teamed up with multi-talented Australian artist Ukiyo, the two deliver a four-minute emotional experience packed with soft, atmospheric soundscapes, ghostly vocal chops, skittering arpeggios and crisp, booming drums.

“I wrote the first draft of ‘Midnight Sun’ when I was in the middle of traveling to and from the west coast for a few collaborations. There’s a moment when you’re flying at 30k feet where the sun sets below the horizon resulting in a faint glow barely visible behind the earth. I tried to capture that moment in ‘Midnight Sun’. Working with Ukiyo on the final track was incredibly organic and I felt like he knew exactly what the vision was supposed to be.” – OTR

As OTR has always done well to ingrain deep emotion into his music, it was a pleasure to discover he had a fantastical, sci-fi video pairing to bring this incredible release to life. We can’t wait to set our ears on his debut LP! Stream “Midnight Sun” below and keep an eye out for OTR’s forthcoming album Lost at Midnight due out April 24. Enjoy!
