“The town was alive with spiralling lights” sings RJ Thompson on the opening line of new album Lifeline. An expertly crafted exploration of his childhood and mental health, the album fuses classic songwriting of old with electronic synth laden grandeur.
Described as “synth Springsteen”, the album is full of heart, poignant universal themes and a message of hope in troubled times.
Recorded at RJ’s own Codename Studios, the album features the singles “Kids”, “So Right” and “Forget About The Day”. Mixed by Grammy winning mix engineer Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, James Bay).
To celebrate the release of Lifeline, all members of RJ’s newsletter will receive high quality downloads of every track, including lyrics and stories about the songs, to your inbox in the week leading up to release (4th Sept 2020).
