Ricky Montgomery Unveils Nostalgic New Song "Unknown Phantom"

Acclaimed alt-pop artist Ricky Montgomery shares his new single Unknown Phantom” today via Warner Records. Leaning into nineties alternative rock influences, he stretches the scope of his sound once again, pairing hummable melodies with an electric guitar-boosted chorus awash in dreamy, distorted fuzz. The track follows the release of recent single “It’s Ok To Cry”, paving the way for more music to come very soon. 

About the track, Ricky says, "We wrote ‘Unknown Phantom’ on Halloween after my producer Tommy's stepson walked into the studio wearing a costume with these red glowing eyes and scared me to death. It got us thinking about Halloween parties we had gone to as kids, and our early crushes and childhood memories in general. It all came together in just a few hours, and was instantly one of my favorite songs I've ever worked on."

Meanwhile, Ricky is in the midst of his biggest North America headline tour yet—"The Rick Tour: Another Rick in the Wall”. He’ll cap off the 25+ date North American run before heading to Asia to perform in Singapore on May 24th.

With 2 billion streams and 8 billion TikTok views, Ricky continues to foster his devoted young fanbase that hangs onto every word of his sunny, soul-searching alt-pop about life in all its messy and mundane glory. The recent release of his major label debut album 'Rick' incited unanimous praise from fans and critics alike, with WONDERLAND promising, “this album is set to be a defining chapter in the career of Montgomery, fully coming into his own as an artist with depth, character and presence.” Billboard raved, “The listener can’t help but pay attention to Montgomery.

Steadily building his fanbase across Asia, Ricky's Top 10 global streaming markets now include the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.
