HUEY AVE. MUSIC IS SET TO RELEASE EAMON'S GOLDEN RAIL MOTEL SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2017.
The singer behind hit single “F**k It (I Don’t Want You Back)” returns after decade-long absence determined to write a new chapter.
"After nearly a decade of silence since his #1 hit record 'Fuck It (I Don’t Want You Back),' [Eamon] started popping up on sincere, emotional hip hop tracks by the likes of R.A. the Rugged Man, Vinnie Paz, and Vinnie’s crew, Jedi Mind Tricks. Gone was the fresh-faced kid who managed to swear six times on the hook of his big hit, and in his place was a smokey-voiced, soulful crooner we wanted to hear more from." Mass Appeal
After a decade-long hiatus, Eamon (pronounced Aim-in), the soul singer/songwriter/producer behind the hit single, “F**k It (I Don’t Want You Back)” returns with a fiery collection of new material, an album soaked in soul that plays like a modern soundtrack to a bygone era of music making.
After selling millions of records worldwide and hitting #1 on the charts in over 40 countries, Eamon returns with a renewed passion on his upcoming full-length LP, Golden Rail Motel. The LP not only signifies a return of one of R&B’s most powerful voices, but also marks a new chapter for Eamon, both personally and professionally. An early onslaught of fame, money, and all the trappings of instantaneous, worldwide success led to hardships and struggles for the young Eamon, and his demons almost derailed his very promising career and life—a journey that is captured in several songs on the album.
“I had a problem,” says Eamon. “I was a young kid with a lot of money who didn’t know how to deal with fame.”
“Before I Die”—the second single from his upcoming LP, Golden Rail Motel—merges Eamon’s passion for doo-wop, hip-hop, and soul music. Equal parts beautifully-textured vocal harmonies and head-cracking drums, “Before I Die” shares the tale of a Travis Bickle-like character sick of getting the short end of the stick in life and his wild desire to make people pay for his desperate predicament.
About writing “Before I Die,” Eamon says, “It’s a song that tells a story of pain, loneliness, and betrayal, but also the beginning of redemption.” He continues, “The irony of the song is that self-sabotage also has a lot to do with me being stuck in ruts throughout the years. Victim-itis is a downward spiral.”
“Before I Die” is produced by Snipe Young and co-produced by Eamon and Dan Ubick.
“Before I Die” will be available digitally on June 16, 2017. The Golden Rail Motel LP coming September 15, 2017 on Huey Ave Music. The lead single “Be My Girl” is available everywhere now.
