Ryan Star Talks New Music, New Look & More

Ryan Star just finished his latest album A N G E L S + A N I M A L S and he talked all about it backstage at the GRAMMYs.

The concept album Ryan Star just finished is unique, in that it is a collection of songs which tells one, continuing story.  “The album is a journey,” he explained.  “The end of each song is a ‘to be continued.'”  He’s hoping this musical storytelling will motivate his fans to “binge listen” to the record all at once, much in the way addictive TV shows like Breaking Bad are eagerly consumed in one, big viewing.

Star has something else in common with Breaking Bad and its star Walter White– a brand new look complete with a shaved head!  “I went to the studio, and I went deep on this record.  I shaved my head halfway through it and I found clarity, and now I feel like I’m out of the cell and ready to talk about it,” he explained.  “I used to have that Jew-fro thing going on.”

A N G E L S + A N I M A L S is available now.  You can listen to the entire interview with Ryan Star below!
