LISTEN: Acantha Lang, “Ride This Train”

Feb 17, 2023

Artist: Acantha Lang
Hometown: New Orleans, Louisiana
Song: “Ride This Train”
Album: Beautiful Dreams
Release Date: April 14, 2023

In Their Words: “At its core, ‘Ride This Train’ is about never giving up on your dreams. We all get disheartened, and certainly on my journey in music, I’ve had times when I felt like giving up. I wrote this song as a reminder and an affirmation — ‘I’m gonna ride this train all the way to the end and when it stops I’m gonna start all over again!’ My dreams have taken me from my hometown in New Orleans to New York City, and on to London where I live now. I’ve been ‘riding trains’ and chasing dreams for a long time! It’s my love of music that has carried me through. It’s my calling. And I believe that we owe it to ourselves to follow our calling. Life is too short not to. (Also, it doesn’t hurt that the idea for the song came to me when I was traveling on a train to a studio writing session).” — Acantha Lang
