Joji has linked up with producer-DJ Don Krez for a chill new single titled “Breathe.”
On the laid-back song, the 88rising singer wears his heart on his sleeve and opens up about an all-consuming romance. “You found the best of me inside your feelings / The worst of me was waiting for that evening / It’s just me these days, I can’t say I’m great / I can’t stop seeing your face on all these ceilings,” he sings over reverberating synths and bouncy bass.
“We started working on this track a year and a half ago,” Krez said in a statement. “Joji agreed to be a part of a project I was working on and ‘Breathe’ was born. I love this track because the production complements Joji in an amazing way. It’s been a long ride until the release as we worked on different versions, getting the right vocals.”
“Breathe” is the latest release from 88rising’s forthcoming compilation album Head in the Clouds II, following Rhyme So’s “Just Used Music Again” and NIKI’s “Indigo.” The record is due out October 11.
