NEW CITY, NY, July 28 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Peter Lake, the self-proclaimed musical “ghost of New York,” returns with his latest single WIPEOUT. The song, which features Lake’s friend and preeminent drummer Charley Drayton, represents a shift in tone for the artist whose recent hits have come from songs inspired by electronic dance music. His recent hit STAY BABY STAY couldn’t be more different from WIPEOUT. WIPEOUT features live percussion performed by Charley Drayton. Mr. Drayton, a multi-instrumentalist and producer currently on tour with Bob Dylan, provided key advice on the track, which was recorded using traditional analog instruments at the Atomic Sounds studio in Brooklyn, New York. Mr. Lake’s composition demonstrates the ease with which the artist mixes genres.
Asked about the meaning of the song, which features a catchy melody perfect for a road trip or a day at the beach, Mr. Lake replied, “This song doesn’t have a lot of metaphor. It’s pretty much a literal description. of a march break in college. It was before COVID hit, and I stayed on campus to study. A group of upperclassmen saw me around campus. empty and invited me to join them for a surf trip on the coast of Baja in Mexico. It’s pretty funny when I think about it: the only reason I wanted to go there was because I had a crush for a girl in the group I hadn’t worked up the courage to tell her how I felt, but I thought it was my chance Of course, when we met in San Diego, tragedy struck: the girl I loved didn’t come…she was visiting her boyfriend!Meanwhile I told the group that I didn’t know rfer! That’s how I became a driver. Mexico is one of the most beautiful countries I’ve been to, and I wrote this song to never forget it.”
WIPEOUT will be available on Apple, Spotify, Tencent, YouTube and all streaming services from July 29, 2022.

Biography of the artist
Peter Lake is a Canadian-born, New York-based singer-songwriter who relishes anonymity.
At a time when privacy is scarce, Peter believes his ability to create music is protected by his anonymity and by working with unconventional partners in an attempt to avoid the constraints of traditional record deals, which often consider recorded music as a means of promoting visits.
Peter is the first of his kind: an artist who will only do live gigs via a web-based platform, freeing him up to focus exclusively on writing and recording new original music that crosses all genres. In doing so, Peter has amassed one of the largest catalogs of singer-songwriters in the industry. His musical influences include Neil Young, Max Martin, David Bowie, Motown and Drake.
It’s no surprise that his songs are difficult to place, often flying between (and combining) House rhythms, crisp guitar riffs and “traditional chants and natural sounds”. Asked about his goal, he replied as follows:
“My goal is to wake up every day and make music, and one day, through that process, to write and perform what will later be considered the greatest song in history, a song that will define humanity for centuries.”
