London’s Little Simz has stayed relatively under the radar this year, busy touring, and releasing only a handful of features throughout the year to keep us satisfied. Luckily for us though, she’s now made a surprise announcement just in time for Christmas!
Announcing her return, Simz has dropped a glimpse into her sophomore album titled Stillness in Wonderland, out this Friday. The track Poison Ivy sees Simz at her finest once again. Driven by dense, echoing guitar rhythms alongside drifting synths, piano rolls, and a pulsating line of congas, 808s, and other percussive sounds; it’s this relaxing sound that she bodies so well. Delving into her past, guiding us through a relationship’s demise, it’s oddly catchy for such a melancholic song.
Stillness In Wonderland is set to be one of her most revealing releases to date, and is a story of personal evolution, divulging into her relationships, the strive for pride and awareness, and the desire for greater influence, whilst trying to avoid the pitfalls of “Wonderland”.
For now, other details are left quite scarce, but we can assume following her breakout project A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons along with collaborations and features with the likes of Kehlani, Mick Jenkins, Stormzy and many more, there’s no doubting this is going to be something monumental.
If you’re like us and left wanting more, not to worry, Little Simz’s album comes out this Friday, the 16th of December, and if that couldn’t get any better she’ll be in the country throughout January playing a range of headline and festival shows. Listen to her latest introspective tune and get all the relevant info below.
