Bonafide global Korean American singer-songwriter Eric Nam has released his highly anticipated all-English sophomore album There And Back Again available to stream now on Archodia Play va The Orchard.
The irresistibly catchy, sleek pop record — with production contributed by frequent collaborator and GRAMMY Award-nominated hitmaker Rabitt — marks Nam’s first release as a newly independent recording artist.
The seven-song album features new single “Lost On Me” as well as previously released tracks “Any Other Way” and “I Don’t Know You Anymore.” Nam also shared the official music video for “Lost On Me” directed by Scott Lazer.
On the release of his new album There And Back Again, Eric shares, “‘There And Back Again' is my first album I’m putting out as an independent artist. It’s definitely taken a while to get to this point and to be honest, it was a very tough process, but I’m thrilled with how it turned out and hopefully my fans and listeners will feel the same. I’m looking forward to seeing how people connect with the new sounds and to see fans on the road.”
Nam’s upcoming 51-date headline There And Back Again World Tour kicks off on January 24, 2022 in Phoenix and hits 30 other North American cities — including stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, New York, and Atlanta — before embarking to Europe, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand in spring and summer 2022. Due to high demand and 95% of the tour being sold out, several venues have been upgraded and more dates are expected to be added throughout 2022.
For singer-songwriter Eric Nam, making music was something that always made him feel at home. As a newly independent recording artist, Nam is taking the reins of his career and building in unexpected and innovative ways. Beyond being a singer, songwriter, entertainer, and TV personality, Eric stays busy as the Co-Founder and Creative Director of DIVE Studios, a media company he founded with his brothers in 2019 that has accumulated 1.3 million subscribers.
There And Back Again marks Nam’s foray into music on his own terms. For Nam, the album’s meaning is layered. It reflects his experience of feeling like a foreigner no matter where he is, the highs and lows of relationships, and also the physical journey of Nam relocating from Atlanta to Korea for the past 10 years and returning home to become an independent artist. On There And Back Again, Eric unpacks the album’s deeply personal meaning and confronts past heartbreak.
