Serving the album's lead single "Ribbons", the sobering track takes listeners throughout late nights in California up to wee morning hours, driven by powerful piano work matched with strings, synths, and guitars that create hypnotic melodies. As he sets the mood for vulnerability, Beatty sings "Who’s gonna hold you whilе you sleep/It’s brave to be nothin’ to no one at all."
Upon the release of "Ribbons", the man encapsulates the meaning behind the track in a poem that shares the very essence of what "Ribbons" is all about:
"What started as a night became a morning under the southern sun/Became a citrus kiss became a crickets click became a cows howl behind the slaughterhouses door," Beatty wrote. "You spun the car keys took your shirt off chewed two apples to the core turning red turning west/Tipping the switchblade to Roswell trucking through Tucson my California called us in the distance/I saw your shadow i bared your cross i felt your heart I tasted your tongue in my teeth and/It became the perfect carnage of my feelings for you."
Offering clarity and healing amidst life's aches and unexpected journeys, Ryan Beatty offers new perspectives, healing, and growth with "Calico". In a review, Ones To Watch praises the album as a "transformative step for the visionary singer-songwriter, an intimate and admirable embrace". Indeed, Beatty's new offering never fails to offer a warm embrace.
