Today, 25-year-old Ethiopian-Canadian singer and songwriter Ruth B. unveils R&B-pop fusion “Die Fast,” the second single from her forthcoming album Moments In Between, out June 11 via Downtown Records. Executive Produced by Patrick Wimberly (Beyonce, Solange, Blood Orange, Ellie Goulding) and Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Santigold), “Die Fast” is diaristic pop that rides pizzicato strings and a skeletal beat as Ruth B. unspools a warm vocal that tries unsuccessfully to shed unrequited romantic longing.

Ruth B announces her new album Moments In Between out June 11 on Downtown Records. The album is the follow up to Safe Haven. Moments In Between was produced by Patrick Wimberly, Justin Raisen and Doug Schaft. These producers have worked with Beyonce, Ellie Goulding, Angel Olsen, Maggie Rogers and Ashe.
“‘Situation’ is maybe my favorite song I’ve ever written,” says Ruth, who wrote the track with Ido Zmishlany (Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes). “It sounds so much like me, and where I am now versus a few years ago.”
“Writing songs has always been therapeutic for me,” says Ruth, “and I hope that hearing my songs helps other people in the same way. Whether they’re feeling lonely or heartbroken or happy, I want them to know that someone else understands what they’re going through.”
