New York, June 29th, 2023 - “Beautiful Horizon” The second single from award-nominated pianist, composer, and producer, Ray Angry’s forthcoming second album, Ray Angry Three (J.M.I./Mister Goldfinger Music) will have its world premiere on July 14th.

The new single will be followed by the release of the album on August 18th.

About Beautiful Horizon: Angry comments: “Belo Horizonte is the 6th largest city in Brazil. It has mountains from where you can see most of the housing for its 2.5 million residents. The song Belo Horizonte, named after the city, means ‘beautiful horizon’ in Portuguese. It conjures up similar imagery to the profile of the city:  beautiful, staccato in the beginning but resolving peacefully in a hopeful melody. Sonically, ‘Beautiful Horizon’ represents the beauty both inside and outside of us that we can and cannot see. This piece was birthed from an understanding of our collective consciousness and respect for our fellow human beings, as well as our dear Mother Earth.  It is an acknowledgment of the vast beauty that life has to offer.”

"Beautiful Horizon" will be released digitally on July 14th worldwide 🌍

Pre-Save “Beautiful Horizon”:

Ray Angry Three will be released on vinyl via J.M.I. Recordings in late summer. The digital release will be released on August 18th via distribution by Mister Goldfinger Music Group, Angry’s production company. This album will feature Angry on solo piano.

“ Ray Angry Three is my most personal album thus far in my artistic journey. Playing solo piano has always been rewarding for me on so many levels. Because it’s such an enormous healing tool, I’ve used this album to reflect on past relationships. The songs on the album are all dedicated to individuals who have had a huge impact on my life. My prayer is that Ray Angry Three becomes a source of goodness and comfort for each listener. It goes without saying how grateful I am to have partnered with J.M.I. on this release. It’s wonderful to work with a company that truly loves the art of making and recording music. Thank you to everyone that has been involved in the creation of this album.” - Ray Angry

J.M.I. comments, ’Beautiful Horizon’ is a great example of why Ray is one of our favorite instrumentalists: he tells a story with his composition and plays deeper than any words can go. The story of this song is of course whatever the listener hears, but to us, it’s about belief.  Belief in ourselves and the good things we have coming and most of all, the belief that by sharing Ray’s talent we can make the world just a little more beautiful.”
