Last Friday, EDEN released a fourth track from the album, “isohel,” via all digital partners. (Stream and download it HERE). His wandering guitar work and gently devastating vocal performance channel the ache of reminiscence. “Isohels are lines on a weather map that connect all the areas that receive equal sunlight,” EDEN explains. “Light and sunlight have been an odd obsession for me since I was a teenager; I’ve always felt like I was moving toward some unreachable horizon. The song ‘isohel’ is about wishing the best for the people you’ve left behind but knowing that you’re probably better off where you are now.” A video for “isohel,” filmed in Kazakhstan and directed by EDEN’s frequent collaborators Zhang + Knight, was also released on Friday. The video features EDEN hitching a ride through a muted purple and gold-hued countryside. Watch it HERE.

EDEN (Dublin-bred artist Jonathon Ng) is touring in support of his new album no future, which will be released on February 14th via Astralwerks. On this sophomore release, EDEN takes an outward-looking perspective with the looming threat of the climate crisis informing much of his songwriting. But while its songs often return to themes of finality and loss, no future unfolds with an unlikely splendor that ultimately makes for a transcendent listening experience. As with all his music, no future was recorded and self-produced in EDEN’s home studio in Dublin.

“I want to give the show as much depth and density as possible and explore new ways to create mood and atmosphere via the lighting, set design, clothing, instrumentation, camera work and whatever else we can use to our advantage, says EDEN. “Working with various artists in a bunch of different fields on the designs and concepts will hopefully make this the most immersive show yet and if all goes to plan we should be in a really special place that I don’t think I could’ve imagined achieving when I first started touring.”

“isohel” follows the previously released album tracks, “untitled,” “projector” and “love, death, distraction” which V Magazine deems, “a hauntingly beautiful slow jam that doubles as a reflection of our relationship with our phones, brought to life by the strums of a guitar and Ng’s euphonious ennui…”

Released in January 2018, EDEN’s debut album vertigo shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Albums chart in 12 countries, racking up over 200 million streams globally. To date, EDEN has amassed over one billion streams for vertigo and his two EPs: 2015’s End Credits and 2016’s i think you think too much of me — a Billboard 200-charting EP featuring the Lorde-supported lead single “sex.” With the vertigo World Tour selling out across the globe, spring 2019 saw the premiere of “909”– a stand-alone track and the final song released in the vertigo era.
