LA based neo-soul Singer Rozzi Shares New Song “I Can’t Go To The Party” From Upcoming EP “Hymn for Tomorrow“
In her new single “Hymn For Tomorrow,” she learns to find the strength in letting go of past disappointments in order to make room for something new. Today, Rozzi has unleashed the bold, R&B-styled “I Can’t Go To The Party” single alongside a striking new video directed by Jack Begert.
At the time that she wrote it, the song described a “brutal” experience running into an old flame at a social gathering and reflects on personal growth through experiences. The single now holds a dual-meaning. It also encompasses the spring awakening that we are all feeling as we come out of lockdown, while still not ready to party safely quite yet.
Rozzi says, “I wrote the song after running into my ex boyfriend at a party and feeling like the months I’d spent getting over him had suddenly vanished. Being so affected by the sight of someone that you’re willing to let all your friends have fun without you, is a really lonely feeling. For the video, we wanted to capture that vulnerability, moodiness, and melodrama by showing me all dressed up in diamonds, with nowhere to go… Just alone, eating popcorn in bed, with a full face of makeup on. Our brilliant director Jack Begert captured it perfectly. And of course, with the Pandemic, none of us have been able to go to any parties for the last fourteen months- so it took on a whole other meaning!”
Her forthcoming EP “Hymn for Tomorrow EP” has mostly recorded in London and New York with a handful of stellar producers, including: George Moore (YEBBA, Clean Bandit), Andrew Hollander (Carly Rae Jespen, Coyle Girelli), Pretty Sister (Betty Who, Jordin Sparks), Michael Dragovic, Eric Leva and Jurek (Matoma, NCT Dream, Blackbear), and with Rozzi sharing production duties on “i dk,” Rozzi’s smoky, full-bodied vocals spectacularly amplify each song, as they move seamlessly from upbeat pop, funk and R&B to low-key acoustic ballads.
Rozzi followed this by discussing her point-of-view on climate change, and voting for science on appearances with political platforms NowThis and Sierra Club. Impressed by both the song’s message and her incredible delivery, Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran featured the track on his WHOOOSH! Podcast. Her relatable quarantine track “Best Friend Song” found support across SiriusXM Pulse, Spotify “Pop Prism” + “Tomorrow’s Hits” and much more.
