Dublin-based vocalist/producer/multi-instrumentalist​ Jonathan Ng aka EDEN caught our attention (and Lorde's) with songs like "drugs" and "sex" back in 2016. Instead of forcing more content to capitalize on the buzz, the 21-year-old artist took 2017 to perfect his live show on stages and at festivals worldwide, but he's gearing up for a big 2018. EDEN's debut album vertigo is scheduled for a January 19 release on Astralwerks, and his single "Gold" kicks things off.

“I was a showing my friend a guitar and he tuned it to this weird tuning that I don’t even understand,” Ng recalls of the song. “One day I picked up the same guitar and it was still in that tuning, and the first thing I played ended up becoming the riff to that song.”

"Gold" showcases Ng's songwriting skills and forward-thinking arrangement choices, and it's an exciting look at an artist poised for a breakthrough year. In addition to dropping an album, EDEN will be taking his impressive show on the road in 2018. Hear "Gold" and see the dates below.
