“Beautiful Eyes” features Ripley on lead vocals and guitar, Christopher Schelling on keyboards and Shannon Ford on drums and percussion.
“Making music has saved my life,” Ripley said in a statement. “With any luck, ‘Beautiful Eyes’ will do the same for RIPLEY fans and new listeners alike. ‘Why won't you answer the musical question? / Where did you get those Beautiful Eyes?’ the chorus of the song asks, and then the verse spins out a story. The lyrics are mysterious, but one thing’s for sure: it sounds like a really fun party.”
A music video for “Beautiful Eyes” has been shot by director John Carucci and will be online in March.
Ripley's other recordings can be purchased by visiting The Playbill Store.
