Eden – Vertigo

EDEN also premieres the video for the song “float” today.  “Walking the line between stirring beats and subdued lyrics, “float is a literal medley of earnest emotion and ingenuity,” saysLadygunn.

Shot in Ukraine, the “float” video completes the trilogy directed by Zhang + Knight, who also lensed EDEN’s videos for gold and crash.” Watch it HERE.

On March 1st, EDEN kicks off the North American leg of his headlining vertigo world tour. The 21-year-old musician sold out several shows almost immediately and added additional dates and upgraded venue sizes in over ten cities due to high demand. Fourteen shows, including two nights at Irving Plaza in New York City and one night at The Fonda in Los Angeles, are sold out. Tickets for the remaining shows are on sale now at http://iameden.eu/tour. All dates can be found below.

Several tracks from vertigo have been released, including “gold,” which flew to No. 10 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart upon release and has over four million Spotify streams to date, as does “crash.”

Pigeons & Planes declared that “‘gold’ showcases [his] songwriting skills and forward-thinking arrangement choices, and it’s an exciting look at an artist poised for a breakthrough year … EDEN is set to have a big 2018.” “gold” followed “start//end,” which Billboard called,striking … a nostalgically cast reflection on youth and all-too-relatable feelings of desperation and hope – there’s a secret depth to [EDEN’s] sound.”

V Magazine declares, “both (EDEN’s) music and his persona seem reflective of his overall goal on his upcoming debut album – to make something grand and magical out of something that seems much smaller… Given the captivating and utterly intriguing output he’s given us so far, the task should be easily doable.”

On his 2016 breakthrough EP i think you think too much of me, EDEN struck a rare balance of ingenuity and intuition with its guitar-heavy take on electronic pop. With vertigo, he takes an even more instinct-driven approach to his music, a process he perceives as a form of exploration. “Even when I’m writing, I don’t feel like I’m actually creating anything,” he says. “It’s more like I’m uncovering something that’s already there. Like how an archaeologist doesn’t create a fossil – they’re just finding it and uncovering it, and maybe rearranging it if it’s broken. Releasing this body of work is terrifying and exciting and overwhelming for me. A lot of it is so personal. This album is not a coming-of-age story, but it caused one.”

Racking up over 90 million streams on Spotify to date, i think you think too much of me EP hit No. 1 on the iTunes Alternative Chart, and No. 2 on Billboard‘s Heatseeker chart. From the bedroom of his childhood home, Ng initially began to cultivate a large online following and made his EP debut with End Credits in August 2015. Despite making no effort to promote it, he soon found the work gaining major attention – ultimately amassing more than 145 million streams combined across his two EPs. EDEN’s first U.S. tour sold out immediately and he spent that summer performing at major U.S. music festivals including Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Firefly.  He also performed at the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK and Fuji Rock in Japan.
