Rina Sawayama Returns with New Single ‘LUCID’

    Rina Sawayama is back with a new single titled ‘LUCID’. The track was co-written with Lauren Aqualina and features production from BloodPop, who has previously  worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Vampire Weekend, HAIM, and more. Check it out below.

    “It’s about living a different life through dreaming, whether it’s to be with the dream girl or to be the dream girl,” Sawayama explained in a statement. “Me and Lauren Aquilina wrote this together on the floor of my tiny rented living room back in early 2018. BloodPop sent us the beat and the melody flowed out so easily that I remember at one point I started hoovering cos I knew this would be easy to write lol. I’ve kept this song secret for 2 years so I’m so excited to finally release it to the world! 2020’s been a tough year so I wanted to finish it off with a dance bop to take us into a more hopeful 2021 ❤”

    ‘LUCID’ follows on from the release of the artist’s debut studio album, SAWAYAMA, earlier this year. Last month, she performed album track ‘XS’ on Fallon.
