Emerging singer-songwriter UMI has released her latest song, “why don’t we go,” along with an official visualizer. The flirtatious track explores a new autumn fling, emphasizing the thrill of living in the moment.
In the song, UMI sings, “I met you on a Sunday / And made love on a Monday, see / Think back it was a fun day / I wouldn’t want it any other way.” She describes the track as an invitation to enjoy eternal youth, be playful, and live in the present moment.
Scheduled for release on January 19, 2024, talking to the wind will showcase UMI in a new light as she fully embraces love, life, and the concept of feeling okay with being lost in the world. This EP is UMI’s first independently released project and will consist of four tracks.
