The new track follows her 2019 debut single Company and last year’s Just My Type (A Little Bit Lonely).
The title origins of Distant Dreams came from the back of a painting in her parent’s home. Tulliah describes how the captivating track came together, “We set up my new piano in the backroom of my parent’s. My mum was moving a painting that they have had for years to the top of the piano when she read the back of it – it was called Distant Dreams. This song flowed out of me. I used to never really believe that I could achieve my dreams. This song is about not wanting to break away from my visions and goals. The lyrics ‘don’t go waking me up’ is a really direct demand to myself! It’s about not wanting to go back to doubting my capabilities.”
Whilst unveiling the track, Tulliah has also confirmed the debut EP Fre$h Hugs will be released on 12 March. The EP features Distant Dreams, Just My Type (A Little Bit Lonely) and two new tracks. Recorded throughout mid-2020 while her Victorian hometown came out of lockdown (and then back in again), the EP offers relatable glimpses at a teenage musician coming of age, reflecting on mental health and relationships.
