yeule shares “softscars,” the title track off their forthcoming album, out September 22nd on digital platforms with the physical release out October 6th via Ninja Tune. yeule notes that previously, “I was forcing myself to separate myself from my artist persona and trying to tone myself down, because I felt like people wouldn’t like me if I was really that,” With the forthcoming project they are now bridging their fractured identities.

yeule shares about the single, “In the garden of my mind, it’s dark and prickly sweet and sticky. And just like that the scar in my heart slashed across the center, the most precious one was made.”

The multi-artist will be heading out on a tour across North America and Europe this Fall with SASAMI supporting all North American dates. The tour routing includes stops at Webster Hall in New York and The Fonda in Los Angeles alongside festival appearances at Portola Festival and Levitation Festival.

softscars was written and produced by yeule and collaborator Kin Leonn, with additional production from Mura Masa and Chris Greatti. The album follows their 2022 release Glitch Princess. Described as “A chameleonic auteur guided by a multidisciplinary ethos, they craft entire worlds and personas through their music, weaving together everything from the classical canon, hypermodern internet cultures, academic theory, the esoteric, and their own carnal desires”.
