New Music from Ray LaMontagne




The last record by Grammy winning folk artist Ray LaMontagne was 'Supernova' in 2014. It reached #1 on rock music charts and #2 on album charts spanning all genres only 12 hours after it was released. The album received praise from The Wall Street Journal and Rolling Stone. Mr. LaMontagne is coming out with a new album this year entitled "Ouroboros". He has just shared the lead song entitled "Hey, No Pressure". According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the artist says the song is about "watching someone dear to him buckle under the weight of their responsibilities." The artist wrote in his song "anything you want your life to mean, it can mean". NPR states that the tune is "a new song and a new sound" for this musician. CBC.ca says the track is "electrifying".  Music from Ray LaMontagne, including the brand new "Hey, No Pressure" is available on the Freegal site.
