yeule releases new song "inferno" with tour dates

yeule shares “inferno,” the latest single off their forthcoming album softscars out September 22nd via Ninja Tune. “inferno” finds yeule lamenting over a relationship, incorporating burning analogies to describe the intensity in their heart. Contrary to the track’s title, the song is light and dewy. Like many of the songs on the forthcoming album, “inferno” was originally born from a journal entry, which yeule often refers to as a scar entry. Speaking on the track they note, “The song is a gash, scar no.9. In this scar I ask the blue flame in my heart, will you ever fade? When you are engulfed and eaten in blue, what was left of me were parts of you.”

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.

Earlier this month, yeule announced 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.
