Canadian rocker grandson has returned with a new single, “riptide”. It was co-produced by Mike Shinoda.

The song arrives a month after grandson released his latest single, “Identity”.

grandson, whose real name is Jordan Benjamin, explained what “riptide” represents, “These songs have a lot to do with the conflict we find between making painful change or dealing with the pain from staying the same with those familiar bad habits.

“One way or another, it’s gonna hurt like hell. Mike Shinoda co-produced and mentored me through this process, which began in a writing session at his studio with my longtime collaborator Boonn in early 2019. We had tried a couple ideas earlier in the day that I couldn’t get into, and then I picked up the guitar and played the intro riff and the song practically wrote itself.

“It was the first of this new era written, and while it addresses the pain of regret, the places we go to avoid confrontation, I’m proud to tell my story and hope that someone that hears it will find the strength to tell theirs.”

grandson has yet to announce a new album.
