Ryn Weaver’s Debut Album ‘The Fool’ Is Streaming on iTunes
Ryn Weaver's debut album The Fool isn't technically available in the US until June 16, but fans are in luck -- it's currently available to stream on iTunes Radio.
In an interview with New York Magazine, Weaver -- born Erin Michelle Wüthrich -- said, of the album, "It actually covers two relationships. The record poses the question: Is it foolish to settle for what you always thought you wanted as a 22-year-old woman, or is it foolish to go and leave what’s so beautiful, stable, and certain? I think that’s a question a lot of young women have these days, especially coming from a generation of girls who — in my opinion — have less of a road map. It’s not just about being a woman: It’s about being a modern human and about fear of commitment."
If you're not yet familiar with the California native, you probably should be. Weaver saw a fair amount of buzz last year following the release of her song "OctaHate," which was co-written by Charli XCX. The track -- an upbeat ode to the end of a toxic relationship -- went viral, suddenly catapulting Weaver into that kind of awkward limbo between hype and success that new artists made popular by the Internet are often faced with.
Proving that she's conscious of the public's response to the song, Weaver said, "I think it’s pretty polarizing — people I know either loved it or were like, ‘Turn that shit off.' That’s the kind of music I want to make, and I was really surprised by the response."
