After taking an eight-year hiatus, Jonna Lee has returned with a new iamamiwhoami single “Don’t Wait For Me”, which will feature on the upcoming album Be Here Soon.
The new single lands with a ionnalee and John Strandh-directed video.
Joanna Lee said of the forthcoming album, “Be Here Soon is a story about meeting memories with new eyes while creating the present. It’s about the complexity of becoming a mother as a working artist. About the psychological, emotional and physical changes this means, and the choice to be open with these changes through my work process of making this audiovisual in relation to myself, my collaborators and our audience. It’s also about living with OCD and reevaluating my work/process and the level of sanity of it all while struggling with motivation in the current music industry climate.”
“We felt ready to get back into our immense creative process that comes with our work and wanted to make something that would be true to where we are in our lives and careers now,” Lee added. “Claes [Björklund, co-writer/producer] had just become a dad, and I’m carrying a child now. That brought us to a pretty raw state.”
Be Here Soon will follow iamamiwhoami’s 2014 album Blue, and will feature 10 tracks and a 10-episode video series.
“Don’t Wait For Me” is out now. iamamiwhoami’s Be Here Soon album will follow on 3 June.
