LYAM Announces New Album ‘The Art Of Letting Go’

Listen to '2 HOT 4 THIS' with John Glacier...

Walthamstow artist LYAM has announced his second album. ‘The Art Of Letting Go’, out September 6th on W3LY2 (weloveyoutoo*) via Platoon.

LYAM (real name Liam Harris-Williams) follows up his debut ‘N_O CALLER ID‘ with an “artist album” featuring appearances and production from Jianbo, Wiki, Mura Masa and Jeshi collaborator ineedsound.

“Hear me on the radio, never felt so in the zone” LYAM declares on comeback single ‘2 Hot 4 THIS’, roping in fellow nonconformist John Glacier. Over turbo-charged rap-punk propulsion, the pair’s invocations take on a mantric bent in an ode to fortitude in the face if adversity.

‘The Art Of Letting Go’ is a collaborative, cosmopolitan tapestry, ripe with quotables and street-level colloquials. Sonically, LYAM tackles alt-rock and breakbeat jungle with a cinematic luminosity centred on his lithe, supple bars. The twelve track collection radiates freedom and resistance, “penning down the charge of former relationships, setting it alight and letting it go.”
