NIKI pays ode to her younger self in new album 'Nicole' — listen

NIKI's new album is here. 

From heartwrenching recounts of a breakup to nostalgic what-ifs, the Indonesian singer-songwriter bares it all in her sophomore record, Nicole. Comprising re-produced and reimagined versions of old tracks, the album brings to life the stories and songs written by "high school Nic" and pays homage to the aspiring artist she was before she got signed to 88rising in 2017. 

Nicole, which NIKI describes as her "most favourite thing I have ever made as an artist", features the original tracks that were originally uploaded to the singer's YouTube channel, nzee24 including 'Before', 'Oceans & Engines'and 'High School In Jakarta' which all dropped earlier this year. 


"This project is without a doubt my most favourite thing I have ever made as an artist. It's where younger me and current me meet and hang and have a f**king blast together. No words adequately convey how stupid proud I am of it and every part surrounding it," said NIKI in an earlier statement

In line with the album, NIKI will be holding screenings for her short film But I'm Letting Go which features the music videos for 'Before', 'Ocean & Engines', and High School In Jakarta', starring the singer-songwriter herself, Peter Adrian Sudarso, and Zoe Simone-Yi. Following screenings held in New York and Los Angeles earlier this week, the film will premiere in Jakarta on 13 August.

NIKI will also be heading on her first solo headlining tour this September across the US. This will follow her set at the highly anticipated Head In The Clouds festival in Los Angeles this August.
