Montreal producer, songwriter, and singer, RYAN Playground, is sharing a video for new single, Prolongation, which follows RYAN as she journeys back to childhood. Speaking on the video, director Didier Charette explains:
“After several meetings with me, RYAN opened up and told me her life story. There was a moment in her life that changed everything. For her, an actual encounter flipped her world upside down and made her realize that she had grown up to not be her true self and she wanted to go back to her childhood to find herself. For years she had tried to fit in, but that moment made her realize that she wasn’t happy. That’s what we went for.”
RYAN first garnered attention last year with her debut EP, elle, for Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs label. On elle, RYAN revealed her talents for unconventional pop arrangements and introspective songwriting. Prolongation is now available everywhere now via Secret Songs / Last Gang.
