Hammock collaborated with singer/songwriter Matthew Ryan and released a single together called 'Like New Year's Day' which was released on January 1st, 2011, new years day. There are 3 versions of the song, a Matthew Ryan Mix, a Hammock Mix and the original song itself.

Matthew Ryan
Born November 7, 1971, he is an American singer-songwriter whose music can be roughly characterized as alternative country. Ryan also collaborated with Neilson Hubbard to form the band Strays Don’t Sleep. Ryan’s voice has been described as a “hushed rasp, with words catching like vows destined to be broken - one of modern music’s most potent whispers.”

Perhaps the most underrated singer/songwriter of the past 12 years, Matthew Ryan arrived on the music scene in 1997 with Mayday. A combination of influences from Tom Waits, Waterboys and Bruce Springsteen can all be heard here, but the sound and songwriting are Matthew Ryan’s alone.

An American two-member post-rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. With music created in between production and songwriting projects over the course of two years, Hammock combines live instrumentation, electronic beats, and droning guitar into atmospheric music similar in style to the work of Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky, and Stars of the Lid.

Hammock is a collaboration between Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson that developed out of informal recording sessions between songwriting projects. Hammock initially had no intention of releasing their studio efforts. After building up a collection of almost 40 songs, however, they changed their minds.
