“Ghosts,” is the next single from their forthcoming album softscars out September 22nd via Ninja Tune. “Ghosts” is led by a steady guitar rhythm featuring layered vocals and is written from the perspective of someone who is untethered to the physical realm. yeule shares more on what the song is about noting, “Love without obsession and an undying innocence, like shattered memories and floating so empty, finally, I am enfleshed after being so hollow…”

The announcement follows their previously released double single “dazies” and “fish in the pool” as well as the news of new tour dates across North America and Europe this Fall and Winter with SASAMI supporting all US dates. The tour routing includes stops at Webster Hall in New York and The Fonda in Los Angeles alongside festival appearances at End of The Road, Portola Festival and Levitation Festival.

By setting their inner musings to cathartic punk riffs and ethereal electronics, yeule crafted softscars. On the blistering project, they closely examine the anatomy of their long held emotional wounds, making for their most penetrating and daring work yet. By liberating their repressed memories through images of blood, flames, porcelain, and angel wings, they honor the way that pain has shaped their past selves and built their instinct for self-protection.

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. 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.
