Today, Tyler Ramsey shared “Flare (for Neal Casal)” the second song to be released off his forthcoming album New Lost Ages, due out February 9, 2024 via Soundly Music.

“Flare (for Neal Casal)” exclusively premiered via Relix earlier this week who calls the track “a stunning tune.”

"Sometimes people need help and they never ask for it,” says Ramsey, “sometimes people send signals out but those of us that might see them don’t know what to do to help.”

“it captures an echo of the isolating and difficult feelings many struggle with and extends a hand, saying, you are not alone wandering gracefully across musical landscapes to free minds and souls through the undulating cadence of folk, rock and indie inclinations” - RELIX


The new track was written after Ramsey’s hearing of Neal Casal’s passing. In conjunction with the track’s release, Backline, a non-profit organization focused on providing customized mental health and wellness resources to the music industry and their families has announced that applications are now open for The Neal Casal Fellowship (2023-2024) through the Neal Casal Music Foundation. The Fellowship program is in its second year, and provides one individual with the unique opportunity to work with Backline, The Neal Casal Clinical Fellow supports long-term clinical strategy, working to build programming to support the real-time needs of the music industry. It is a paid position. More information can be found at https://backline.care/neal-casal.

“Flare (for Neal Casal)” follows the release of “New Lost Ages” (title track).


“This song is about letting go of innocence and facing the reality of a society that is in decline. One that is refusing to change course or even pause itself,” Ramsey says. “It’s searching for hope in all of this. It’s wanting my children to be able to experience this world with wonder and joy and not have to carry the weight of our mistakes.”

In support of his new album, Ramsey will embark on a nationwide tour that kicks off on February 20 in Washington DC.
