Melbourne artist and producer Yeo has released his first single of 2021 in celebration of the Lunar New Year with ‘U In?’.
‘U In?’ marks a return to the sound Yeo broke on to the scene with, using some strutting basslines and ending with a keytar solo – a cornerstone of some of his earlier work.
The song, released on Friday (February 12) in time for the Lunar New Year, also marks the first in what’s promised to be a string of singles throughout 2021.
Listen to ‘U In?’ below.
‘U In?’ is the first solo cut Yeo has released in some years, following a largely collaborative 2020. Most notably, he charted new territory when he teamed up with Taiwanese-Australian artist Chendy for ‘好好的過 (Have A Nice Life)’ – Yeo’s first song predominantly not in the English language.
“Singing in Mandarin for the first time definitely had me feeling self-conscious, even though I studied it for six years as a child,” Yeo said of the song at the time of its release.
“I know I will never sound like a native speaker but I thought, Korean artists do it all the time, so I should at least have a go.”
