(Los Angeles, CA – June 16, 2023) Today, Australian songsmith and producer PJ Harding releases his debut EP To Fall Asleep via RECORDS/RCA Records. The EP is a powerful and intimate collection of PJ’s work that touches on love, disconnection and existential dread during lockdown in the middle of 2020 and showcases why he’s arguably one of the most gifted songwriters in the industry. Listen HERE.
Speaking on his EP, PJ says, “I wrote and recorded this collection of songs while locked down in LA with my family mid 2020. There are moments on the record where you can hear my kids yelling, vacuums running and the general noise of our lives happening around the music but it felt right to leave that stuff in where I could. To Fall Asleep is, for me, about the tension between fear and acceptance, love and death, holding on and letting go. It’s also about the lies we tell ourselves trying to escape or ignore that tension. I’m incredibly proud of this work and so happy it’s finally out in the world!”
To Fall Asleep is carried by effortless, plucked guitars and soothing vocals. It consists of previously released singles “It Wasn’t Enough,” and “A Dangerous Thing” along with 4 brand-new stunning and vulnerable tracks. Check out the full tracklist below.
