While most projects normally release Friday, Keep Cool/RCA recording artist UMI has released her new EP Introspection EP timed to the moon’s position in Cancer a few days later.
A six-track release, Introspection is led by the singles “Pretty Girl hi!,” “Open Up” and the title track. The EP is also accompanied by a short film produced with Issa Rae’s production company Raedio. “Introspection is a reflection of my journey inward. I’ve never been more honest in my expression of self, and I hope that it serves as a reminder that our highest healing and growth comes from within,” UMI says. “The film is an extension of the music, creating a world for viewers to live in. The story is an apt visual metaphor for how interconnected life and our individual experiences really are. Unpacking themes of self-discovery, love, heartbreak, and family dynamics, [co-director] Jocelyn Woods and I hope that people can find themselves in the film—that it can serve as a mirror inward.”
