Ahead of the release of her new album Romanticism, Hana Vu has shared new single “23.” The LP drops on May 3rd via Ghostly International, and features production and drums by Jackson Phillips (Day Wave), as she sings about the angst and dissolution of adolescence, and the liminal state of getting older and wiser while also feeling less hopeful: “I don’t wanna go / anywhere anymore / and I don’t wanna be anything, anything / I’m just getting old / I’m just 22 / I just wanna hold onto you.”

“Being young, there’s so much that I experience for the first time, all the time. But as I experience more things, I become more desensitized to those things,” Vu explains. “You get wiser–– I feel quite wiser–– but less fervent, less hopeful.” She captures the contradictory feelings of youth, the luster of impermanence, in all its building wisdom, in all its funneling hope. “‘22’ is about how I was paralyzed by grief and memories and by being 22; all at once a baby and the oldest I’ve ever been. But now I’m 23 and I’ll probably be 24 by the time I’ll get to perform this song for people.”

Vu will embark on a North American headline tour in support of Romanticism this summer, which will include stops in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and more, before concluding with a hometown concert at The Lodge Room in Los Angeles.
