After her fist album Control, Rosie is about to release her second album, YU, this May. The first single from this project is produced by Dave Okumu and features The P Funk Choir of Jamie Woon, Jamie Lidell, Jordan Rakei and Kwabs, ‘BirdSong’ marks a new dawn for Rosie Lowe. The track was inspired by ideas of “lust and desire, but with the lingering sense of insecurity and longing.” In its warmer, sensual and cosmic textures, ‘BirdSong’ acts as the perfect first new introduction into Lowe’s second album, ‘YU’ - a record that asks bigger questions of how the heart and mind works, and ultimately finds power through opening up both.
Despite its richly classic feel, what’s emerged on ‘YU’ is an album on thoroughly modern, twenty-first-century love: its childhood myths and more pragmatic realities, its utopias and difficult weathers. Those moments when you find out how you are, who you are, and if you’re brave enough, you let it all bleed through. On her stunning second album, ‘YU’, Rosie Lowe has also done just that.
