Following over 170 million total streams and widespread critical acclaim, Irish international phenomenon Picture This share a brand-new single, ‘Winona Ryder’, today.
Picture This lead vocalist, Ryan Hennessy, discusses the new single, “I think everybody has experienced that star stuck feeling at least once in their lives. When you meet a celebrity or somebody you really look up to, it almost doesn’t feel real and it sets your heart racing and stomach tumbling and you don’t really know how to act. “Winona Ryder” is a song about getting that feeling but not with a celebrity, instead with a girl. This happened at a time where I had given up on love and companionship. I was reminded that it still exists. Someone can unexpectedly walk into your life and turn it upside down in the best way through grace, beauty, and recklessness. “Winona Ryder” is a celebration of the nervousness and edginess bestowed on you by someone you are in awe of.”
Kicking off 2020 with the release of “Winona Ryder”, Picture This sets up to release their third studio album. Stay tuned for more information soon!
Picture This also recently announced a stadium sized tour this Summer across Ireland, full list of dates below:
Fri 26th Cork, Ireland, Irish Independent Park
