Nijuu has announced a new EP with lead single, ‘나에게로 Come To Me’.
The Korean dream-popper is expected to release ‘nijuu in the forest’ – the follow-up to last year’s ‘nijuu in the sea’ – later this year.
“The key theme on ‘nijuu in the forest’ is about ‘growth’ and about the journey to find a new place where I could learn more and be more independent,” she explains. “‘nijuu in the sea’ was about a little girl who just got separated from home, learning to find the way out of the darkness.
“If ‘nijuu in the sea’ was like a little bird who just broke out from the egg then ‘nijuu in the forest’ is about the little bird trying to learn how to fly and move its wings. Like learning to have more maturity and awareness (mentally, physically) and to be a better person.”
Of the song, she adds: “I was thinking about – who am I? I was questioning myself again and again. And always I thought I’m no one. I’m not special. I’m nothing. In 2018, I was walking on an uphill road, I saw the sunset and I felt like the light told me ‘come to Me, please come to me. You are not gonna be staying in the dark. If you feel nothing, that means you could be anything’ and right after I went back home and wrote the song.”
