Grammy-nominated electronic music prodigy ford. today shares “In My Eyes”, the fourth and final single from his highly anticipated sophomore album The Color of Nothing — out October 16, via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective.
“In My Eyes” is another sonically expansive track from the hotly tipped artist, blending minimal synth waves with a midtempo beat and acoustic-electronic sounds. The track features vocals from Canadian streaming sensation and close friend VERZACHE, who is one of the hottest rising names and was due to go on tour with mxmtoon this year before COVID-19 hit.
Speaking on the track, ford. shared “I began writing this track back in February of 2019. A year later, I finally had a flushed-out demo. Quarantine had gone into full effect and one of the things keeping me grounded was Facetiming my friends. I would check in with Zach (Verzache) and we would have these long conversations about mental health, missing touring, and how quarantine was affecting our writing processes, etc. I remember sending him this demo on one of our calls and he sent back a full finished verse the next day. The lyrics and melodies channelled a lot of the themes we had been talking about and it immediately resonated with me. Immensely grateful for dudes like Zach and every opportunity I get to make music with close friends; nothing quite like it.”
