Loving music means waking up every day to the news of new drops. And UMI is officially added to that list! UMI recently announced her upcoming EP, talking to the wind, which will be released on January 19th. This EP marks the next chapter in UMI’s journey, following her much-loved debut album, Forest in the City, in 2022.
We’re looking forward to seeing the new side of UMI in this upcoming project. We’re presenting three must-listen songs to get you in the mood for UMI’s talking to the wind.
‘why don’t we go’
To set the scene for the upcoming EP, we will be listening to ‘why don’t we go,’ a pre-release from talking to the wind. This song is all about enjoying your internal youth, being carefree and young. The funk-infused guitar is catchy, and the track has a perfect lo-fi opening vibe.
‘say im ur luv’
This R&B tune introduced a new dimension from UMI, and since its release last year, we’ve not stopped playing it. Plus, the video was self-funded by UMI as she spreads the message to fans about the importance of investing in themselves and their dreams.
‘wish that i could’
This song, in particular, captures the delicacy of love and pairs it with a calming melody. The video is a heartwarming celebration of queer love. It’s truly a fan favorite and resonates with anyone who might feel like they’re in the minority. UMI is bringing something so fresh that the music breaks barriers and nurtures love.
Everything You Need To Know About The Upcoming EP.
To kick things off, UMI will take over the zen scene in LA with some upcoming meditation sessions. These act as an extension of the soothing sessions she leads before her own concerts, helping fans connect and find their inner peace.
