The track arrived last Friday (January 7) on all major streaming platforms under Warner Music label Black Hat Cat Records. Fellow Malaysian artist Airliftz penned the lyrics for the track, which are about moving on from an old flame and no longer waiting for a call from them.
In the spooky music video for ‘RING RING’, Podolski goes on a solo drive and picks up a mysterious hitchhiker. They head to a pub in the woods, where he encounters a woman with a murderous streak. Watch it below:
In an Instagram post, Airliftz shared that the writing process for ‘RING RING’ – his first song written fully in Malay – was a tough experience.
“I never had the confidence to write anything in Malay ’cause I feel like my writing in Malay is really weak. I had to scrap off a lot of times, finding different melodies to make sure it hits the heart,” he explained. “I was in Penang in the room by myself, crying my ass off working on this piece ’cause it got me in my feels.”
‘RING RING’ is Podolski’s first release of the year, and follows his 2020 EP ‘Hitam Putih’.
Meanwhile, Airliftz – real name Muhammad Aliff Shaharom – teamed up with singer-songwriter Alex Ungku and Malaysian production trio MFMF for single ‘Rindu Part 3’ last November.
