Having previously charmed our ears with the exquisite grace of 2021 EP The Way Back Home and her debut album Pendulum, and with acclaim from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit and Afropunk, singer-songwriter Aisha Badru has now announced the release of her upcoming new EP, due out in June.
Our first taster of the EP comes in the form of stirring new single ‘Lazy River‘. Flowing with a lilting energy, the track reflects on the journey of emotional healing and the time that this can take. Rippling with the shimmering grace of Badru’s vocals and a twinkling folk-strewn musicality, ‘Lazy River’ offers a beautifully soothing heartfelt anthem, showcasing the rich majesty of what Badru can create. A blissful interlude of cathartic calm.
Of the track, she explains:
“It’s about the healing process after loss. Emotional healing is a journey. True healing takes time and there should be no shame or urgency in any step of the process.”
‘Lazy River’ is accompanied by a beautiful new video, directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick, choregraphed by Nyda Kwasowsky and featuring dancer Amara Barner. Watch it here:
Learning To Love Again, the new EP from Aisha Badru, is set for release on 2nd June.
