Following Ngaiire‘s stunning lead single ‘Closer’, today the Sydney-based, Papau New Guinea-born future soul artist shares her emotional new track ‘Him’, taken from her forthcoming album 3 out Friday 27 August via Dot Dash Recordings / Remote Control Records for AUNZ and Majestic Casual for the rest of the world. Watch the lyric video for ‘Him’ below.
Of the single Ngaiire shares, “It’s the reality of the darkness traversed to get this album here. It’s a letter that would have been left if I hadn’t been able to finish it. It’s about a deeply personal conversation that no one dreams of having with the people they love. It’s about the legacy of love.”
3 was written by Ngaiire and produced in partnership with Jack Grace over the course of the last three years. Made during an incredible time of change, learning and processing, Ngaiire has penned an incredible artist mission statement that dives deep into her identity, heritage, history and the story of creating her third album. Read her powerful artist statement in full below.
“I am full to the brim of stories that many don’t have the privilege to hold within themselves; some I know quite well and some live deep in my DNA that I won’t have enough lifetimes to unpack. But the ones I know, I will tell how I want to because I can. So here is a collection of love letters to 3 entities – myself, my country and those I love both here and now departed.” – Ngaiire
3 will be released on green vinyl, black vinyl and will be available on all digital platforms on Friday 27 August. Pre-order & pre-save via https://ngaiire.lnk.to/
