Bolis Pupul Announces New Album ‘Letter to Yu’, Shares New Single

    Bolis Pupul has announced his debut solo album, Letter to Yu. Following the producer and singer-songwriter’s 2022 album with Charlotte Adigéry, Topical Dancer, the 11-track LP comes out March 8 via their label DEEWEE. Lead single ‘Completely Half’ arrives with a music video filmed in Hong Kong and directed by Bieke Depoorter. Check it out and find Letter to Yu‘s details below.

    Made with Soulwax, Letter to Yu is a love letter to Pupul’s late mother, who passed away in 2008 in a traffic accident. “When I started to think about my roots, I started to embrace them,” Pupul, who was born to a Belgian father and a Chinese mother, said in press materials. “And it became more and more important for me to get in touch with them. I went to evening school and began learning Chinese. I did that for four years. That was the first step.”

    In 2018, Pupul made his first visit to Hong Kong with the intention of locating where his mother, Yu Wei Wun, was born. He began writing a letter to her, which eventually became “the centerpiece of this album.” Pupul added, “Even though this trip was very emotional and at times sad, I also had some great times that just made me really happy. This resulted in a very uplifting melody where I felt like I could handle my life.”
