Rina Sawayama has shared a new song called “LUCID.” It’s produced by BloodPop®. Check out “LUCID” below. In a statement, Rina Sawayama said:
It’s about living a different life through dreaming, whether it’s to be with the dream girl or to be the dream girl. Me and Lauren Aquilina wrote this together on the floor of my tiny rented living room back in early 2018. BloodPop® sent us the beat and the melody flowed out so easily that I remember at one point I started hoovering cos I knew this would be easy to write lol. I’ve kept this song secret for two years so I’m so excited to finally release it to the world! 2020’s been a tough year so I wanted to finish it off with a dance bop to take us into a more hopeful 2021.
“LUCID” is set to appear on the deluxe edition of Sawayama’s debut SAWAYAMA. The deluxe edition will also include new songs “We Out Here” and “Bees & Honey,” Sawayama’s cover of the 1975’s “Love It If We Made It,” and more. SAWAYMA: Deluxe Edition is out December 4.
