In his brand-new album Yearbook, RJ combines the feeling of loss and hope, to explore the depths that can be reached within songwriting.
The album fuses classic song writing with an alternative indie pop sensibility, sweeping from the sun-kissed bliss of the hopeful Feel Alive, through the dark yet enticing Cutting Room Floor, to the intimately beautiful Forest Fires which intertwines voice, guitar, and string quartet. He has created a world around the songs. An App, accessed through QR codes installed into the album artwork, created alongside a friend, invites fans into the songs; through childhood pictures, voice note demos and discussions around the lyrics and their themes.
“Genuinely for the first time, I’ve written songs on Yearbook where I’ve gone ‘Oh my God, that’s mine! I’ve surprised myself and I really do love it.” he admits. Now it’s everyone else’s turn to be surprised by RJ Thompson’s ever-expanding world.
