Tim Atlas Drops New EP ‘Le Soir’; U.S. Headline Tour Slated For September
August 25, 2023 BY Jason Currell
Brooklyn-based multi-hyphenate singer, songwriter, and producer Tim Atlas drops his new EP Le Soir, part one of a larger body of work. Tim Atlas floods a nocturnal hybrid of R&B, neo-soul, alternative, and D.I.Y. bedroom pop with unrestrained emotion on this latest project. Gathering hundreds of millions of streams and inciting the applause of Complex, Earmilk, The Line of Best Fit, Spin, and many more, he opens up like never before on his 2023 EP, Le Soir.
“This E.P. is the first chapter of three. It’s a collection of songs that I wrote as a result of moving to N.Y.C., a place that has always allowed you to fully be yourself. I never defined myself as one thing, so this record is a testament to that,” says Tim.
He introduced Le Soir with the entrancing and electrifying “Knockin.” The EP also features recent releases “Attractive” and “See Thru.”
Standout release day track “Sushi in Wyoming” is fueled by a slick drum pattern and glitchy synths. Tim states, “Driving cross country from L.A. to N.Y., we literally stopped in Wyoming for a night. At that point of the road trip, I couldn’t stomach another burger or gas station staple, so I opted for sushi. Sometimes the worst version of something you crave is better than the alternative. I wrote the title in my notes app so I wouldn’t forget that moment. It actually wasn’t bad.”

Tim has carefully peeled back the layers of his artistry to reveal his grittiness, innate musicality, and vision for Le Soir.
Following this release, Tim is slated to for a headline U.S. tour that kicks off in September, with Bay Area band Pink Skies added to the support slot. Tickets on sale: https://bandsintown.com/a/7288612-tim-atlas
There is much more to come in the near future from this musical anomaly.
Tim has woven a myriad of sounds and emotions across all of his projects to date, such as All Talk! , Together Lonely  and the QUOTA EP —which The Line of Best Fit dubbed “an escapist, encapsulating listen, and one that will surely open even more doors as Atlas continues on his path to creative fulfillment.” Meanwhile, FLAUNT christened him “an anomaly in the music industry.” Simultaneously, his music reacted with listeners as “Compromised” eclipsed 32 million Spotify streams, followed by “Courtside” with 27 million Spotify streams, and “Unwind” with 23 million Spotify streams. As a dynamic performer, he also shared the stages with the likes of The Magic City Hippies and Gold Room and played festivals, including The Great Escape Festival and Noise Pop. During 2022, he maintained his momentum with “Honeycomb” and “Disco Cosmos” [with JORDANN]. In between, he traded Los Angeles for Brooklyn, and the new surroundings provided a breath of fresh air for his next creative chapter.
