Singer-songwriter Aisha Badru returns with the gossamer folk-pop single ‘Lazy River,’ a stunning introduction to her upcoming EP, Learning To Love Again, out June 2 via Nettwerk. ‘Lazy River’ sits at the heart of Learning to Love Again and is a thrilling departure for Aisha. A culmination of her personal and musical awakenings, it finds the singer stretching her oft-whispery voice to sweeping effect.
“It’s this freeing of myself and allowing myself to try things that people would not expect of me,” she says of her vocals. “I feel more comfortable not meeting those expectations.” On the meaning of the song, she adds, “It’s about the healing process after loss. Emotional healing is a journey. True healing takes time and there should be no shame or urgency in any step of the process.”
Aisha delivers ‘Lazy River’ with an equally stunning music video directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick, choregraphed by Nyda Kwasowsky and featuring dancer Amara Barner.
