Following recent single ‘BS’ featuring rising London-based rapper Che Lingo, today, acclaimed R&B artist Milan Ring releases new single ‘Hide With You’ on Astral People Recordings / [PIAS] following the track’s premiere on triple j’s 2021 with Richard Kingsmill over the weekend. Accompanying the release is a music video created in lockdown with housemate and director Caitlin McCartney.
Hope serves as the declarative banner framing every beat, word and jazz piano chord on the track, a reflection on mental health, the search for freedom, and ultimately healing.
On the new single, Milan says, “‘Hide With You’ is about the search for freedom; hoping that one day, in the vastness of space & time, we find it together. This is a song I hold very dear to my heart and has provided great healing for me. I hope that it may do the same for others also.”
A singer, rapper, guitarist, producer, mix engineer, Milan Ring meticulously curates each and every aspect of the creative process, from the first chord struck on the guitar to the final mix.
Milan Ring shows off all facets of her talent being the sole producer and mixer on 'Hide With You'. Choreographed by the BINDI BOSSES, the single artwork for ‘Hide With You’ features the Mudra (Indian dance symbol) for Bhramara, which refers to picking at small things and opening knots.
Last month, Milan performed a mashup of SZA’s ‘Broken Clocks’ and ‘Love Galore’ as part of triple j’s Like A Version. Joining Bryce and Ebony on triple j’s Breakfast program, Milan also shared a live rendition of ‘BS’, with Sydney rapper Jaecy taking on a guest verse.
