Sam Ryder’s latest single shows a side of the Essex-born singer that we have rarely seen on previous releases.
All The Way Over isn’t as pleasingly euphoric and positive as last two singles Somebody and Living Without You. Instead, it’s simplistic in its arrangement that matches the story of dealing with grief and loss.
A sombre piano is the only accompaniment to Ryder’s voice throughout most of the track, but it could just be vocals and the song would be just as impactful.
Written with Amy Wadge and Max Wolfgang of Space Man, Ryder has thrown a hint of a melody from his Eurovision entry into the end of each verse of the new track which is a clever nod.
Ryder’s debut album is just weeks away. Now we have more of a flavour of what to expect when There’s Nothing But Space, Man! drops.
