Ryan Nealon puts the “Lights Out”
After the success of his independent releases garnering over 600,000 streams collectively, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Ryan Nealon is releasing “Lights Out” today, which is the third track from Nealon’s highly anticipated EP. “Lights Out” is an anthem about finding yourself again after an abusive relationship.
Ryan tells us: “Lights Out”, which is the third song off of my EP coming this fall, is about bouncing back from an emotionally abusive relationship and learning to respect and love yourself all over again. I wrote this song with my friend Haleigh Bowers and we wanted to create something uptempo but with a deeper meaning, and it really helped me get closure from my past relationship. When I say “Won’t let you love me now, even with the lights out”, I didn’t fully believe it then, but I sure as hell do now”.
“Lights Out” was recorded, mixed, and produced by Zack Djurich (NAS, Kanye West, Teyana Taylor) athis studio in North Hollywood, CA.
