New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Allan Rayman has announced the release of his second full-length album 'Roadhouse 01' on February 24th via Ben Lovett's Communion Records and his own label/brand 512 Productions.
Today, he debuted "Repeat
" ft. Jessie
Reyez on Zane Lowe's show on Beats 1, Apple Music's global radio station.
'Roadhouse 01' chronicles Allan's retreat to an isolated cabin in the woods of Lost Springs, where he wrestles with his demons in the form of a rebellious alter ego, Mr. Roadhouse. It covers a lot of narrative territory, from the fluttery, vulnerable, hip-hop infused "Repeat
" to the closing tracks on the album, where the antagonistic Mr. Roadhouse fully takes over. The album fuses R&B, hip hop, and folk influences with dark, seductive storytelling.

On Allan's latest single "Faust Road," his voice alternates between a languid, warm-honey tone and a gritty aggressive roar as if "he's channeling Lucifer himself."
Watch his short films "The Bird" and "The Cage," where he captures his story of desire and loss in vivid detail.

About Allan Rayman:
Allan Rayman had to get away. While some artists are blessed with the ability to balance their passions and responsibilities, Rayman found himself singularly consumed by his music, and retreat was the only option. It was a selfish move, and perhaps deep down he knew that, but ultimately, in his eyes, escape was an act of survival. To those he left behind, it felt more like betrayal, but by now their voices have long since faded away, unable to reach him in the isolated cabin he calls home. There, deep in the woods outside the barely-on-the-map hamlet of Lost Springs, Rayman set up residence and began to write and record a stunning sonic chronicle of his slow descent.
