M. Byrd shares new single 'Gunslinger'

Inspired by the unfathomable enlisting of youth in the army, German-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer M. Byrd releases his newsingle ‘Gunslinger,’ which unfurls like a film as guitar echoes underneath narrative, emotional lyrics. ”

“One day, I was on the internet, and I stumbled on a pop-up,” M. Byrd recalls. “It said,
‘You can go to a Ukrainian embassy in Berlin and be at war in a few days to fight.’ I had
been imagining guys and girls my age signing up, getting a weapon in their hands, and
fighting away. It drove me crazy. I couldn’t imagine this was happening.”

‘Gunslinger’ follows the release of M. Byrd’s previous singles ‘Seed,’ ‘Flood,’ ‘Over You
/ Over Me,’ ‘Outside Of Town’ and ‘Only A Feeling,’ all off his debut full-length album
‘The Seed’ out June 16th.

M. Byrd unearths universality from intensely personal songwriting. In 2020, he turned
heads with the single ‘Mountain’, followed by ‘Morning Sun’, gaining millions of streams
and praise from Ones To Watch, Earmilk, Atwood, etc. At the end of 2020, he holed up
in Detmold, Germany in a WWII-era British Corps squash hall rechristened as a studio
with producer Eugen Koop to create ‘The Seed’. Leaving his mark on each level of the
music, M. Byrd personally plays guitar, synthesizers and bass on the record. After
generating 10 million-plus streams and acclaim from outlets worldwide, he continues to
perfect his vision on his 2023 debut LP, ‘The Seed’

M. Byrd will be performing live in Paradiso UP in Amsterdam on the 8th of October.
