American artist RIZ LA VIE continues to showcase his impressive (and highly individualistic) style of sound with the unveiling of new single, ‘FYP’.

Written after his move to Los Angeles, the song takes its inspiration from the feelings and thoughts that we experience when we settle into a new environment.

“[The song] is a representation of my love affair with New York City, even while living in Los Angeles. It reflects my feelings of longing, FOMO, and passion as I see my beloved city moving on without me, such as through concerts and billboards, while LA tries to capture my attention. It’s a story of my longing for my true home and my deep emotional connection to it.”

Having garnered more than 100 million career streams to date, LA VIE finally releases his debut album ‘Haven’ on the 9th Feb (pre-save here). The record will feature prominent production personnel like Vic Wainstein, Daniel Hartzog, Lucy Blomkamp, Johan Lenox, KES and Mike Bozzi.

LA VIE will also embark on a tour across North America throughout the spring – dates and tickets can be found here.


New Music: RIZ LA VIE

“It’s too easy to live life on the surface and never ask the questions that inspire those around you to open up to you. As they trade a bit of the weight they carry for a bit of your understanding- a trade that grounds and grows you & your loved ones, you both grow stronger, closer, and more honest. The seemingly simple act of asking how someone is, and helping procure an environment where they can be authentically themselves, allows you and those around you to foster their ability to be radically honest with themselves and, now, at least one other person. The ability to speak our honest truths and emotions is something that I yearn to hear and see in this world. I am heartbroken in so many cases when the absence of feeling your truth felt, makes your life feel hard to feel at all.”
