“the most personal album we have ever created”

This tour will coincide with Picture This’ forthcoming album ‘Parked Car Conversations’, which arrives on September 29.

An album which Ryan Hennessey has described as “the most personal album we have ever created”. 

“Parked Car Conversations is by far the most personal album we have ever created. There are so many deeply meaningful songs to us on this record and I hope they can be just as meaningful to those who listen. It is an album about everything involved with being human”, he said.

“Love and loss and hurt and euphoria and all of those other complex emotions that flutter in between. The ups and downs of living are conveyed through ballads and anthems alike on this record. It is a truly raw and open album and we’re inviting you in further than we ever have before”.

“I think Parked Car Conversations is so authentically Picture This both sonically and lyrically and with some gorgeous new flavours that we have never had before. It really is so exciting to be sharing it with the world. This album is a soundtrack. Not to a movie, but to life”. 

Back in 2017, Picture This’ ‘Take My Hand’ was voted the Choice Music Song of the Year. More on this from Nova here.
