“Navigation” is the new EP from U.S. hip-hop artist River Nelson that will serve as a bridge to his next full length album coming at the beginning 2018. The new EP follows River’s critically acclaimed albums How To Dream (2016), The Shape The Sky (2013) and The Rise and Fall River Nelson (2010).
Consisting three tracks, “Navigation” is about taking chances in your life, discovering new ground and finding new ways making it through the daily challenges.
“Lately, I’ve been trying to find better ways getting through the everyday struggles that we face and just trying to grow and be a better person overall,” said River. “To me, that process is a Navigation, so I thought the title was fitting.”
The songs on “Navigation” include the title track, where River discusses the meaning the EP. There’s also the cut “Sun & The Sea,” which is about ignoring those societal conventions that may be bad for us, like always chasing money, for example.
And the last song on the EP is “Glow,” a heartwarming story about a single father and his 9-year-old daughter who are trying to make it through hard times and see better days.
The producers on “Navigation” include the UK’s MrSoulsFull “(Navigation),” as well as the UK’s Giacomo Trivelli from the acclaimed group Sam Sure & Giacomo “(Sun & Sea,” “Glow”). In addition, River said the new release is the perfect segway into his next studio album.
“The ‘Navigation’ EP is the beginning a constant stream new music that I’ll be releasing over the next year or so, and it’ll give a glimpse where I am as a writer and MC right now,” he stated.
