Selah Sue Finds Inspiration In New Motherhood With Bedroom EPRead More
Selah Sue released her first album Selah Sue in 2011. A record in which she spoke with pure honesty about her teenage depression and that led her to become one of the music industry’s biggest phenomenons of the 2010s. With her follow-up album Reason (2015), the Belgian artist, heralded by the likes of Prince and Cee-Lo Green, only confirmed the extent of her true talent, establishing herself as an inspiration for a whole new generation of artists.
The writer and singer returns from a silent hiatus at the age of 31 to present her new EP: Bedroom EP. Her voice is still deep, deliciously hoarse and her golden hair standing like a crown atop her head. But something has changed. Crafted the day after the birth of her first child, this project feels more intimate than ever. Written in her bedroom, it plunges us in the euphoric feeling of joy of the artist turned mother. It also seeks to be more ambitious : for the first time in her career, she has taken on herself the task of producing it, one hand on her favourite instrument, the guitar, the other editing away on her computer. Alongside the talented producer Kwes (Kelela, Solange, Tirzah, Loyle Carner, Micachu, Nao) Selah Sue gives birth to 5 tracks that are both glowing and introspective.
You expresses the absolute tender love she has for her two children. Opening with a haunting vocal harmony, uplifted by a baseline written by Selah Sue, this dreamy song strikes through the repetition of these words “You are all I need, you are all I want”, and we are under the spell.
There is also the melancholic Always, where she turns to the father of her two sons. Next to him, Selah Sue sings of her fears, exposing her more vulnerable side, and asks her partner :“When my mind is lost, will you stand by me every night and day?”.
Finally, she digs up songs that had been preciously hidden away, such as You Are My Heart, a track on which her partner’s daughters contribute some vocals. Sincere and deeply personal, more alternative and stripped back than previous releases, Bedroom EP marks a new step in the life of Selah Sue. A new chapter that will allow her fans to get even closer, as they await the release of her upcoming third album.
