Ruth Lyon releases her second single of 2022, ‘Trouble,’ a mesmerizing folksy track about society’s expectations and the anxiety that comes inherit with the pressure.

Ruth Lyon has released ’Trouble,’ an infectious folk-pop tune with a dark edge. The track tells the story of how society’s expectations can take a toll on the individual.

Speaking more on the lyrical inspiration behind the new single, Ruth said:

“This is a reaction against this idea of perfection that society has us believe is the goal, when actually it’s a shortcut to death. I’ve never been able to tread the path of least resistance, but nor would I want to. I am hard work, I am difficult, and I don’t want to be boxed up with a neat little bow with my labels printed on it. I am trouble and I love it.”

The song is available on all digital platforms on Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
