Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Ryan Hamilton has revealed the details for his next studio album Haunted By The Holy Ghost, set for release on March 10th, 2023 via Wicked Cool Records. The title track has arrived as a preview, following “Paper Planes” and “On the Edge.”
Of the song, Hamilton says:
I grew up in a VERY conservative Church of Christ. We used to go to church 3 times a week. There are parts of that upbringing that I will never shake. The “fear of God” is ingrained in me, & will seemingly be a part of me forever. Like a ghost, haunting me. This song is about that.
His most recent album, 1221 was released in November 2021 and was the first Wicked Cool release to be selected as an Official Record Store Day title, with an exclusive vinyl edition released in April 2022. That year, Hamilton played multiple U.K. & US shows booked throughout the year and also 2020’s postponed appearances at Maverick and LeeStock festivals.
In October 2022, Hamilton embarked upon a month-long tour of the U.K., co-headlining with Jason & The Scorchers legend Warner E. Hodges. 2023 promises to be even busier for Hamilton, with the release of Haunted By The Holy Ghost, a full UK/European tour in Spring, plus festivals and US shows through summer and later in the year.
