15 SEPTEMBER 2023 (TORONTO, ON) - Symphonic pop marvel and GRAMMY® nominee Cody Fry has released his newest album, The End, via Decca Records US/Universal Music Canada. The album is full of triumphant compositions, including recently released singles “Waltz for Sweatpants” and “What If.” Listen to The End HERE – and good luck making it to the end without crying happy tears.
Composed and arranged entirely by Cody, The End mixes stunning orchestrations with some of his most vulnerable lyrics to date. After his first experiences with panic attacks and anxiety in 2020, Cody had to step back and reflect on his mental health. Since then, he’s discovered new ways to stay afloat during challenging times and developed a newfound appreciation for the many moments of happiness in his life. On The End, Cody shares the good, the bad, and everything in between as he chronicles his journey to finding peace. Even with a symphonic sound that feels larger-than-life, the album’s fundamentally human themes make it feel deeply personal and relatable. Cody explains, “it’s a journey through my dealings with anxiety, trying to find hope and self-confidence. I’m really proud of it.”
The End is Cody’s first major label album release, following the runaway success of “I Hear a Symphony” and “Eleanor Rigby” which cemented his place as the symphonic pop artist to know. In 2021, Cody’s cinematic love song “I Hear a Symphony'' became an overnight sensation online, skyrocketing the track into the mainstream and generating over 200 million global streams. Shortly after, Cody released his orchestral interpretation of “Eleanor Rigby,” which saw similar success online and earned him a GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals.”
Above all else, The End is a captivating celebration of Cody’s personal and professional growth over the last several years.
