EDEN - "Gold"
After a Lorde co-sign and significant buzz in 2016, Irish singer/producer EDEN decided to invest in long-term goals instead of capitalizing off the moment. Rather than immediately releasing a bunch of music, the 21-year-old artist developed his live show and worked on his music in 2017. With "Gold," he's giving us the first taste of things to come from his debut album vertigo, set to drop on January 19 of 2018. It's a big step up for this young artist, both accessible and forward-thinking, and I think we'll see EDEN's big-picture approach pay off in the long run. We'll find out in 2018.—Jacob Moore
