Fresh off the release of her debut EP ‘Strangers‘ and glowing critical acclaim, alt-R&B darling Mallory Merk shares “North American Ride” today on Warner Records. A longtime fan favorite from her days as an independent artist, the reflective song is officially available everywhere now. Listen to “North American Ride” HERE.
Mallory explains, “‘North American Ride’ is for dreamers and wanderers. I wrote this song to remind myself that even though I’m in control of my happiness and life, I’m still just a passenger on the train. Destinations aren’t everything to me, it’s about the journey to get there and the stops along the way. ‘North American Ride’ is to remind you that roaming the world with keen eyes is only human, and not all who do so are lost.”
The Louisiana-born, NYC-raised 20-year-old has been quietly making a name for herself over the past few years, cutting her teeth in the modeling world for the likes of Yeezy, Gucci, and Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty before linking up with Zack Bia and James Canton’s Field Trip Records in 2019. Mallory made her official music debut last year with “Ghosts,” attracting the attention of cultural influencers like Kendall Jenner and Taco. Now signed to Warner Records in partnership with Field Trip Records and managed by Kayode Badmus-Wellington’s drtymnd collective, the fashion, press, and alt-R&B darling is gearing up for new music to come in the year ahead.
