New Jersey-born, London-based artist Muna Ileiwat has shared ‘Twenty-Seven’, the title track from her forthcoming EP, which arrives August 19 via Fear of Missing Out. Check out a Guy Gotto-directed video for it below.
“The title track of the EP, ‘Twenty-Seven’ is a coming of age song,” Ileiwat explained in a press release. “It explores the transformative and existential emotions of adulthood that started to surface and become prevalent for me at the age of 27.”
The music video for ‘Twenty-Seven’ was filmed at Ileiwat’s grandmother’s house in Curaçao. “My grandma’s house in Curaçao is probably one of my favourite places in the world,” she continued. “There’s so much history in that house; it’s where my mom grew up, where my parents’ families first met and where my brothers and I have many of our own fond childhood memories. Every room tells a story of my family history. The house brings me so much peace and being a part of the visuals for a song that explores so many existential feelings kinda felt like clarity. Guy did an amazing job at capturing the space and all its sentimental value.”
