yeule announces their new album softscars will drop on September 22nd via Ninja Tune. Along with the news, the Multi-artist and producer shares a new single, “dazies”, with accompanying visuals directed by Zhang & Knight. The single drop also comes with a b-side track “fish in the pool.” “fish in the pool” is a cover of a piece from the Japanese film Hana and Alice by Shunji Iwai, a big inspiration for Ćmiel.

“I took the metaphor of the scar to represent each song, and each scar remains soft,” yeule says. “Whether you’re healing from emotional trauma or a physical wound, time never heals a scar completely. There’s no more pain, but you can still see the mark afterward. I have a deep feeling that the things my ancestors went through got passed down; there’s some trauma that just sticks. There was always decay and distortion in my life, there’s always been something wrong or ugly. So the scar reminds me that I’m being protected, and I should protect myself.”

Though its subject matter is heavy and arcane, there is a sense of joyful catharsis that emanates throughout the project, which was written and produced by yeule and collaborator Kin Leonn, with additional production from Mura Masa and Chris Greatti (Yves Tumor, Willow Smith). Driving it along is yeule’s shape shifting vocals, sounding more assured than ever in all of its jagged edges and haunting whispers, relaying the imperfect process of healing.

Alongside the album news and new singles yeule is also announcing additional tour dates across North America and Europe this Fall and Winter. The tour routing includes stops at Webster Hall in NY, The Fonda in Los Angeles, and the Black Cat in Washington, DC alongside festival appearances at Boiler Room Festival, End of The Road, Portola Festival and Levitation Festival. The tour dates follow their sold out Glitch Princess run and you can find tickets here.
