The self-proclaimed “Ghost of New York”
strikes again with three hit songs that make up his first release of 2023. Peter Lake, the world’s only anonymous
singer-songwriter, emerged on the scene in the last 24 months with a series of songs that have garnered over 23 million streams on Spotify and 19 million streams on YouTube.
Once again, Lake has used his music to create powerful messages to help listeners all around the world find comfort and seek optimism. In his lead single “Sweet Sour Minds” Lake tapped into to his growing fan base and promised to write the song about whatever they decide. The process, which
Lake documented on his YouTube channel, led to his writing of “Sweet Sour Minds.” Lake reveals the idea that ‘We can give anything power by loving it, and if that thing turns on us, it can destroy our spirit. But in the end, after it all settles down, we remain optimistic, somehow it’s fine.”
The song Crowds is an ode to Lake’s favorite collaborator, Charley Drayton, whose unequaled drum beats make the song at once a vehicle for Lake’s sometimes mysterious lyrics, as well as a fast-paced
anthem that protests against the unfair use of power . Lake comments that “Charley’s drums sound different. There is a magic there. I’m so glad he’s finished touring with Bob Dylan. I need Charley back.”
Perhaps the most unusual element of Lake’s latest EP is the song “Comfort’s Cross” which seems to contradict Lake’s genre of electro pop. In this recent release, Comforts Cross reminds the listener of Lake’s premise that music no longer has any genres. The song, a classic ballad that Lake originally
wrote as a poem in response to the loss of a loved one and the grieving thereafter, is a naked and visceral emotional response that is led by his voice, and is supported by minimal background music.
