yeule has announced the follow-up to last year’s Glitch Princess. It’s titled sofstcars, and it’s set for release on September 22 via Ninja Tune. The LP will include the previously unveiled single ‘sulky baby’, which made our Best New Songs list, as well as a new song, ‘dazies’. Also out today is its B-side, an instrumental track called ‘fish in the pool’ that interpolates a piece from the Shunji Iwai film Hana and Alice. Check it out below.
“I took the metaphor of the scar to represent each song, and each scar remains soft,” yeule explained in a statement. “Whether you’re healing from emotional trauma or a physical wound, time never heals a scar completely. There’s no more pain, but you can still see the mark afterward. I have a deep feeling that the things my ancestors went through got passed down; there’s some trauma that just sticks. There was always decay and distortion in my life, there’s always been something wrong or ugly. So the scar reminds me that I’m being protected, and I should protect myself.”
