ODDYSSEY OUT APRIL 3 VIA OPENERS/RCA

Today, Amtrac releases his new track “So Afraid” feat. Alex Metric on vocals via Openers/RCA Records, ahead of new album Oddyssey, out April 3rd. In addition to sharing the new track, Amtrac has shared the tracklisting and album art for Oddyssey available for pre-order HERE. Complete tracklist for the album and album art can be viewed below.

Featuring Grammy Award-winning British musician, DJ and producer Alex Metric on vocals, “So Afraid” opens with a pulsating 4/4 synth as Alex Metric poses the question “why you so afraid of love?”. As the track builds layered synths over the course of almost 6 minutes, Alex Metric’s breathy, enunciated voice lend an edge to the droning synths beneath, forming a steady crescendo of sound and passion that blooms instead of bursts while asking the listener, “what you so afraid of?”

“So Afraid” follows previously released tracks Teenage Love, “Accountable”, “Radical” feat. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs which EARMILK called “pure magic,” and “Between The Lines” which Billboard described as “uplifting and catchy.

About Amtrac

The Kentucky-born and Los Angeles-based artist, DJ, producer, remixer, multi-instrumentalist, and founder of Openers, Amtrac made his formal debut onto the scene in 2011 with his acclaimed album Came Along. The album elevated the Morehead, KY native—born Caleb Cornett—to the cutting edge of electronic music. In its wake, he amassed an acclaimed catalog of originals and remixes. Lending his touch to tunes by Two Door Cinema Club, Elderbrook, Sigur Rós, and Chromatics, Pitchfork described his remixing as “epic-sounding. Among the originals, 2014’s “Those Days” notably boasted vocals from Stevie Wonder. Following the 2016 solo EP Lost In Motion, he reached a new plateau on the 1987 EP during 2017. Both “Never Lost” and “Piano Boy” put up over 6 million Spotify streams each as his total stream tally neared the 100 million mark. Along the way, he earned praise from Billboard, Mixmag, Revolt, Complex, i-D Magazine, and more in addition to gracing the stages of major festivals such as Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Osheaga Festival, and Holy Ship!, to name a few. Not to mention, he has headlined shows on four continents. Launching Openers in 2017, he provided a home to tracks by Durante, Rick Trainor, Luces, and many others. Amtrac is looking ahead to 2020 with new music and his new partnership with RCA Records.
