Zuzu is back with her new single Timing. The track marks the first new music for the Liverpool singer and songwriter since 2020’s EP How It Feels.
Timing sees Zuzu continuing to catalogue what she describes as a ‘deep emotional unrest’, attempting to arrange, sort and file how she feels through her music and navigating life as a twenty-something. Speaking about Timing, Zuzu says, “This song is about what could have been – meeting someone you have an instant connection with but the timing was never right. It’s about those lonely late nights / early mornings when the sun is rising and that person creeps into your mind. You wonder where they are, if they’re thinking of you too. I wanted to capture the nostalgic but also melancholy feeling brought on by those sad longing thoughts for somebody you loved.”
As she emerges from her home studio in Liverpool, she has been writing music for Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time: Distant Lands”, contributed a re-working of her song “How It Feels” to The Sims video game (sung in the The Sims’ own language, “Simlish”), and just last month became the first artist in the northern hemisphere to play a non-socially-distanced live show, as she performed in front of 5000 fans in support of Blossoms.
Zuzu recently featured on the charity single All Together Now alongside The Lottery Winners, The Lathums, Red Rum Club, Rianne Downey, Megan Wyn and more.
Zuzu is scheduled to perform at Neighbourhood Weekender in September. She will also support Courteeners at their Emirates Old Trafford Stadium gig.
