Ryan Hurd’s fans demanded new music, so that’s exactly what he gave them.
Released Friday (July 19), Panorama is a four-song EP filled with tracks Hurd previously recorded then stowed away. While on the road performing at various fairs and festivals this summer, Hurd found fans begging for new music so he turned to some of his earlier work to satisfy their request.
“Imagine the biggest night sky you’ve ever seen. That’s how I imagine Panorama when I listen to these songs,” Hurd shared in a press release. “Produced by Aaron Eshuis and remixed by Justin Niebank, they are mostly untouched since we originally recorded them in 2015. For fans that have been with me from the beginning, these are songs that we’ll discover again together – and a thank you for being with me as I’ve grown as an artist. For everyone who has joined along the way, it’s new music that I’m excited for you to hear for the first time.”
Panorama is available everywhere now.
As Hurd continues to make strides as a solo artist, he remains one of Nashville’s top songwriters, penning hits such as “Lonely Tonight” (Blake Shelton), “You Look Good” (Lady Antebellum), “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” (Luke Bryan), and Lady Antebellum’s latest single, “What If I Never Get Over You.”
“To A T,” Hurd’s latest release to country radio, continues to climb the charts.
Fans can catch Ryan Hurd on several dates of Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour this fall.
