Grey Worm From 'Game of Thrones' Has an Album: Raleigh Ritchie Shares Title Track From 'You're a Man Now, Boy'
Raleigh Ritchie may be a man now, but his anthemic sound has always been sure of itself. With more than 4 million YouTube views for the tracks “Stronger Than Ever,” “The Greatest” and “Never Say Die,” the Bristol, U.K., native will release his debut album You’re a Man Now, Boy on Feb. 26.
If you haven’t let Ritchie’s refreshing vocals and determined delivery wash over you (get on that, first off), you may have heard of Jacob Anderson, a.k.a. Grey Worm on Game of Thrones. Yup, in addition to his role on HBO’s landmark series, Ritchie is a dedicated music maker.
Having snagged the No. 1 spot on the Next Big Sound chart in 2014, Ritchie continues to live up to the title. The likes of music masters like Soundwave (Kendrick Lamar) and DJ Dahi (Drake) helped produce the tracks on his upcoming LP. In addition, the gorgeous string performances featured on the record are by Rosie Danvers’ Wired Strings (Adele, Kanye West, Noel Gallagher).
While you wait for Ritchie’s welcome British invasion, take a listen to the delightfully different title track (which is totally free when you preorder the album).
