Ruth Lyon releases sleek new single ‘Stone’

Newcastle folk/chamber-pop artist and songwriter Ruth Lyon has released her new single ‘Stone’, the latest taster of upcoming EP Direct Debit To Vogue, out November 25 via Pink Lane Records. The new EP was produced by John Parish (Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey, Parquet Courts) at his Bristol studio, and will also feature the recently released singles ‘Trouble’ and ‘Clown’.

Sleek new single ‘Stone’ looks at the messy yet ultimately redemptive nature of a long-term relationship. Speaking more on the inspiration behind new single ‘Stone’, Ruth said: “I was influenced by Fiona Apple on this track with her use of simplicity, repetition, monotonous rhythms and development of texture to give power to words. ‘Stone’ looks at the crazy beautiful mess that is any relationship. Bonding yourself to one human for the rest of time is crazy – it’s elemental yet completely mundane all at the same time. Fusing two worlds has the power to feel-earth shatteringly good but also completely destructive – the push and pull of losing yourself yet finding yourself in someone else. The words came out on the page like a poem in one morning and have never changed. The song is raw and I am really grateful to John Parish for being so respectful of the nature of the track, giving it life without taking any of the simple power away. Lady Nade’s haunting tones really lift this song and I am so happy we could work together on this!”
