Matilda Mann has shared a new song, ‘Stranger (for now)’, and has confirmed the release date of her forthcoming EP. Sonder is out September 24 via Arista. Listen to the London artist’s latest single below.
“Stranger (for now), is based off the relationship between Jim and Pam from the USA Office,” Mann explained in a press release. “It’s about how they kept missing each other, as the other one was always in a relationship, but they both know that they should be together. Sometimes you just need a little bit of time with the wrong person to know who’s right for you.”
Of her new EP, she commented: “Sonder means; the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. For me, this was something I realised while in the middle of lockdown. I had all the time in the world to take a step back and see how other people lived their lives, in a way I hadn’t thought of before. I named the EP ‘Sonder’ because each song was either written about someone else, or for someone else. All the tracks were written this year, and I was writing a lot for friends going through a hard time and trying to make a song they could relate to.”
Sonder will follow last year’s Because I Wanted You To Know EP. Earlier this year, Mann previewed the EP with the single ‘February’.
