Ryan Hemsworth has started a new project called Quarter-Life Crisis, a collaborative effort featuring songs created on his own and others with some guests.
He launched the new effort on Wednesday with his standout track "Postcard from Spain," which features Frances Quinlan of Hop Along. It's the lead single off the upcoming self-titled Quarter-Life Crisis EP, which is out on Dec. 4 via Saddle Creek.
"I had a plan going into the Quarter-Life Crisis project, but Frances really helped radicalize me," says Hemsworth. "This collaboration was kind of the catalyst I unknowingly needed. Working on the arrangement together and with our engineer Ryan Schwabe was the best—I've worked with a lot of people but I felt a serious encouraging push from them. In the end we got this fun mix of live, electronic, soft and hard sounds (And a children's choir on the chorus!). It feels like the basis of my whole project."
