Ashton Nyte has today released his new video for the track titled ‘Horses’, from the upcoming album ‘Autumn’s Children’, dropping August 25th.

Building on a beautifully crafted crescendo that pulls on the heart as it climbs, the song slowly engulfs you with Ashton’s signature voice as your guide. This is one of those songs you listen to with your eyes closed, letting the collage reveal itself as the music progresses.

The video is quietly stunning. Not trying to impress because it simply does. Elegantly crafted to the music bar by bar and note for note, the marriage of sight and sound cascade across your screen with fresh anticipation for the next frame. This is music, not just by an musician, but by an artist.

About ‘Autumn’s Children’

South African-born, U.S.-based singer-songwriter, producer, and composer Ashton Nyte recently announced his forthcoming eighth album, Autumn’s Children, due for release on August 25, 2023. Following the release of the record’s first two singles (“Something Beautiful” and “Cinnamon”), today, Nyte shares a new cut from the LP, “Horses,” alongside an accompanying self-directed music video.

Speaking on the track and its visual, Nyte wrote: “‘Horses’ is about finding the courage to let go of aspects of our lives to allow space for new chapters and the healing that brings. It’s also about recognising the perils of the modern world and celebrating the freedom of choosing a different path. And the video allowed me to join and leave the circus – both recurring life goals.”

Like its predecessor, Waiting For A Voice (2020), the 11-track Autumn’s Children will also be accompanied by a book of short stories, poetry, and musings, expanding on the themes of the album. Fans can now pre-order the book, vinyl, CD, and a selection of limited-edition items HERE.
