Floating on airy melodies while grounded by a bounding bass line, Yumi Nu today releases her latest single “25.” A celebration of every misstep and every triumph leading to the present, the Japanese-American alt-R&B artist and model steps into the fully-formed version of herself on this track

“’25’ is an ode to my growth up to this moment. I just turned 26, but in my 25th year I had a lot of realizations and proud moments of how far I’ve come.” 

“This past year I had a big detachment of who I used to be from who I am now. And this song talks about shedding that old layer of skin that you used to call home but doesn’t feel right anymore.” Yumi Nu
