Tycho taps rum.gold for new collaboration, ‘Run Away’
Tycho has returned with his first original release since SIMULCAST, the instrumental appendage to his 2019 LP WEATHER. Exercising his collaborative penchants, the Grammy-nominated producer unites with R&B singer-songwriter rum.gold on an enchantingly subtle production, “Run Away.” With both artists venturing outside their standard sonic borders, the new single embodies signature trademarks from Tycho and rum.gold as the two talents mold ethereal textures and soulful vocals into one resonant piece.
On the subject of collaborating with a male vocalist for the very first time, Tycho said, “working with rum.gold’s voice was really freeing in that it provided the contrast needed to push things into a different emotional space.” Encased by golden tones and crisp details, “Run Away” lays down all-familiar instrumentation and ambient synth harmonies as soft vocal layers wrap around rum.gold’s poignant performance. The release also contains an acoustic version of the track, a stripped-down piano rendition that heavily spotlights vocal and melodic synergy.
