Multifarious storyteller YDE (pronounced EE-dee) has returned with a new single, “Old Her” via Facet Records/Warner Records today. The new song, which blends existential crisis and youthful angst into flawlessly crafted indie pop perfection, is accompanied by a music video, which can be seen now below.
Of the song, YDE commented, “‘Old Her’ is my perspective on growing up and feeling like life never gets easier. Each verse is a real time reflection from different chapters of life that all point back to the sarcastic conclusion that ignorance is bliss.”
On “Old Her,” piano plinks as organic percussion pulsates in a head-nodding rhythm. Meanwhile, YDE’s voice rises from intimate verses into a pensive refrain punctuated by her dynamic range as she observes, “She miss the old her, even though the new her is better than the old her.” In the accompanying visual, YDE plays the piano in time with the melody before launching into an artful dance routine in fluid motion with the song’s meandering momentum.
“Old Her” sets the stage for the singer’s debut project due out later this year executive produced by YDE herself! Prior to today’s release, YDE captivated listeners everywhere with “BlindLife” in 2020 and its predecessor “Stopped Buying Diamonds.” With sharp wit, expansive vision, and undeniable natural talent, she asserts herself as an irresistible, infectious, and inimitable force to be reckoned with.
