Ryan Hurd on new 'Platonic' EP: It's a 'culmination of every good thing that we’ve gotten to experience this year' (Exclusive)

Ryan Hurd has found his sound.

The country crooner dropped a new five-track EP, "Platonic," on Friday, marking his second EP drop since his breakout hit, "To a T," which is also included in the collection. It follows the four-track "Panorama" EP released over the summer.

Hurd is clearly on a roll in 2019, having also released one-off track "Her Name Was Summer," in between the projects. In a quote given exclusively to AOL about his latest set of songs, Hurd sounded excited about the sound that he continues to cultivate with every release.

"It’s always so fun to put new music out, and I feel like we’re really starting to find our sound after 'To a T,'" he told AOL. "I’ve gotten to explore a lot both lyrically and sonically, and 'Platonic' is culmination of every good thing that we’ve gotten to experience this year."

Earlier this year, Hurd sat down for an interview with AOL's Gibson Johns, where he explained his humble outlook on his ever-growing music career and impact on country music.

"I’m kind of getting used to it and finally opened up to the idea that it might actually work," he said. "Because you don’t let yourself believe that something is going to happen until it actually does."
