Today, the award-winning South Korean singer Youn Sun Nah has shared “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” the second single from her forthcoming album Waking World that will be released on January 28, 2022 via Arts Music, a division of Warner Music Group.
For the first time in her career, Youn Sun Nah wrote all of the songs that comprise her forthcoming collection. For Youn Sun Nah writing was a way to find light in dark times, a way to continue her growth as an artist, and the result is 11 haunting compositions that make up her eleventh studio album.”I always thought I wasn’t ready to take on the role of composer,” says Youn Sun Nah, who released her debut album 20 years ago. Until now, she has mainly interpreted the melodies of others – most recently those of Leonard Cohen or Motown icon Marvin Gaye on her 2019 album Immersion, which JazzTimes praised for its “…pointed diction, a mastery of slow-flow aesthetics, noted appreciation for space, and pitch-perfect clarity.” On Waking World she turns to exclusively original compositions that alternate between levity and painful insight, bearing her signature mix of pop sensibility, folk intimacy, and innovative jazz instrumentation.
