Award winning Atlantic recording artist Serena Ryder has announced the release of her new single, “Famous (Feat. Simon Ward of The Strumbellas),” which is now available at all digital music retailers and streaming services. “Famous” – produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Dave Cobb – is set to impact Triple A radio outlets nationwide next month. In addition, the single will be accompanied by a new companion video, premiering in the coming weeks but heralded today with the debut of an exclusive trailer streaming now on Serena’s YouTube page.
“’Famous’ is a song that Simon Ward and I wrote together with my friend Simon Wilcox,” says Ryder. “The essence of the song is about society being obsessed with social media and people trying to achieve fame solely for the sake of being famous. It’s really about how the most important thing about relationships is love, real love and it doesn’t matter if your face is on a big screen or not, it’s having the face of the person you love in front of you.”
Ryder has also proven herself to be a hard-traveling troubadour, with countless headline tours both in her native Canada and around the globe. She has shared stages with a variety of diverse artists including Kayne West, HAIM, Pitbull, Melissa Etheridge, OneRepublic, Tegan & Sara, and Sara Bareilles.
