Christopher Willits returns to Ghostly International with Gravity, his latest exploration in ambient music with deep listening intention. Composed during a period of change and challenge, it is the artist’s most personal and refined work to date.

Lead single "Crescent" lights up the night sky as Gravity's radiant and reassuring entry point. Washes of guitar harmonize with abstracted vocals from April George of DC’s April + VISTA. After a particularly trying studio stretch when his mind was elsewhere, Willits recalls taking a break outside: "I look up, see the crescent moon, that kind where it's so bright but you can see the other side of the moon. I know everything is as it is, all flowing and so beautiful to be within."
