Ray LaMontagne  Featuring "Such a Simple Thing" and "Paper Man", new album 'Part Of The Light' out now. Catch Ray on tour this summer with special guest Neko Case.

Ray performed “Such A Simple Thing” on television for the first time this week on Later With Jools Holland. Watch the full performance at the link in his bio.

The title track from Ray's new album, 'Part Of The Light', is featured on @AmazonMusic's Fresh Folk playlist.

"When kindness is the greatest gift that one can share
Why choose hate or subjugate your fellow man…
I choose to be part of the light.”
'Part Of The Light', Ray’s seventh studio album, is out now.

Get a first listen of Ray's song "Goodbye Blue Sky" from his new album 'Part Of The Light', out tomorrow. He gives @Billboard an inside look at the meaning behind the lyrics.

"I think as a writer a lot of your work is almost like yourself talking to yourself. I know that's how I feel about the songs. It's trying to comfort me. I find myself thinking a lot about how important every moment you have is, how important your friendships and relationships are and how brief life is and how beautiful and wonderful it is and what a gift it is, and not allowing myself to be pulled away from those essential truths.”

Listen to the premiere of "To The Sea", the first track off 'Part Of The Light', via @NPRMusic. The full album releases tomorrow, May 18th.

"[The band and I] have a relationship and we've all played together and they're very sensitive musicians and really good people to have around. I just enjoy being around them on a purely personal, friendship level, never mind the music. That's kind of a bonus. The friendships are really important to me, finding people that you can communicate with easily and approach the music, or their life within music, the same way. That's important.”

"...while I’m writing [the songs] they're still a mystery to me. You just have faith in these little snippets of melodies and follow them when they appear. They're all kind of surprises to me. And that's OK.”

Happy Mother's Day, all the way from Manchester. Thanks for packing the house tonight. On to Glasgow in the morning.
