Artist and producer Hana Vu recently announced a new self-produced double EP Nicole Kidman/Anne Hathaway will drop on October 25, via Luminelle Recordings. Ahead of the EP’s release, Vu has shared the single/video, “Actress.” The song is Described as a “dance-floor ready track, based on the music and conversations in The Actress Roundables, ‘Actress’ is about the compromise of personal values in order to be conventionally successful, and how that may manifest over time.”

The new EP follows Vu’s debut EP How Many Times Have You Driven By, which was released last year..These two new absurdly named but masterfully crafted complementary releases showcase incredible sonic maturity for a nineteen year-old who only just moved out of the house she grew up in, graduated high school, and turned down a college acceptance to make music full time. Hana Vu has opened for the likes of Soccer Mommy, Wet, Kilo Kish, and more, and will tour with Phantogram and Nilufer Yanya this Fall.

Nicole Kidman / Anne Hathaway Tracklist:

Nicole Kidman:
1. Actress
2. Outside
3. Passenger
4. Everyone In The Room
5. Worm

Anne Hathaway:

Nicole Kidman / Anne Hathaway—still as self-produced as the first songs she crafted as a teenager, but now with an engineer to help with mixing—are the sophisticated next level in Vu’s evolution as an artist. They’re the sound of a jaded dreamer who has turned down admission to a prestigious east-coast college to, at long last, make music full-time. “I think these songs just reaffirm what I already know and feel about myself—they’re exaggerations and idealizations of how I see myself,” she says. “I don’t want to be a part of the lump sum of preconceived ideas about what ‘young people music’ sounds like.”
