NEW ALBUM: RUTH B. | MOMENTS IN BETWEEN (DELUXE SPECIAL EDITION)
25-year-old Ethiopian-Canadian singer and songwriter Ruth B. has dropped a deluxe special edition of her album "Moments In Between." The new edition of her fourth studio album features four new tracks, including Dandelions and Spaceship. Executive produced by Patrick Wimberly (Beyonce, Solange, Blood Orange, Ellie Goulding), the album is all written or co-written by Ruth. Following her gold-certified 2017 debut, Safe Haven, and multi-platinum hit single “Lost Boy,” "Moments In Between" is a raw emotional accounting of the anxieties and uncertainty Ruth faces as a woman in her mid-twenties, giving voice to her inner strife via warm vocals, shapeshifting textures, and hazy harmonies. From woozy R&B and pop beats to guitar-driven tracks and folk-like reveries, the songs on "Moments In Between" showcase Ruth B.’s ability to traverse a multitude of musical stylings seamlessly and will surely add to her 1.5 billion artist streams to date. Ruth B. credits her songwriting and storytelling abilities to her upbringing as the daughter of Ethiopian immigrants, listening to the music of her parents’ homeland alongside American icons like Stevie Wonder and Lauryn Hill. Ruth also worked with producers Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Santigold) and Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, Ashe) for this project. They encouraged her to dig deeper in the writing and recording process than she ever has before.
