 singer-songwriter, actor, writer and director Josh Radnor shares his new single “NYC,” a wistful, deconstructed love song backed by dreamy harmonies. The new single will appear on Eulogy: Volume I, which is due out November 17 as the first installment in his double-album solo debut Eulogy: Volume I + II. “NYC” was praised by Paste who called the song “a fresh, poignant take on the excitement of living beyond the shadow of sorrow,” while adding, “Radnor offers glimpses of hope and beauty. There’s an entire spectrum of emotional divinity to untangle here.”
“‘NYC’ is a love letter to both a person and a city and how sometimes the two get inextricably bound up with each other,” shares Radnor. “It was also a kind of writing exercise for me: How many rhymes could I come up with for ‘city?’ That’s Cory Quintard, one of the producers on the record (who also records as ‘Volunteer’) on the solo towards the end. I wrote that bit in the studio and thought it would sound better with Cory singing it. And I was right.”
“NYC” follows the rebellious lead album single “Red,” which Entertainment Weekly recently praised, noting, “Josh Radnor has taken his heartache and turned it into a milestone in his music career.” Produced and engineered by Radnor’s Nashville friends Jeremiah Dunlap, Cory Quintard, and Kyle Cox, Eulogy: Volume I exudes the unquestionable sturdiness of timeless, storytelling-driven Americana, boasting anthemic melodies laced with electronic elements and idiosyncratic twists. Many of the songs on the album serve as goodbyes of sorts: a letting go of people, places, emotions, and ideas.
Throughout Eulogy: Volume I, Radnor’s grounded and intimate songwriting style blends the timeless art of existential questioning with relatable, down-to-earth narratives. Backed by sometimes rowdy, sometimes sparse instrumentation, there’s an alluring sense of vulnerability woven throughout the album, each track well-attuned to the emotion that sparked its creation.
Songwriting is nothing new to Radnor, who began making music in 2013 with friend and celebrated Aussie artist, Ben Lee. The pair released two albums as Radnor & Lee – a self-titled debut in 2017, followed by sophomore album Golden State in 2020. Then, in 2021, he dropped his debut solo EP, titled One More Then I’ll Let You Go, which was praised by American Songwriter for their sincerity, “clever craftsmanship” and “certain purity.”
Later this month, Radnor will embark on a series of intimate show dates in New York City, Boston, Columbus, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. – a full list of dates can be found below and at
