Indonesian singer-songwriter NIKI has just released her latest single, “Before.”
“Before” NIKI, There Was Nicole
Nicole Zefanya, known by the stage name NIKI, has released her newest single, “Before.” The song has a slow, indie feel, which is very reminiscent of the singer’s older music. Before NIKI joined the music label 88rising, she made YouTube videos of her singing original music. This year, she’ll be returning to the music of her past, and her journey starts with “Before.”
In “Before,” NIKI tells the story of immense heartbreak. She sings about traveling hours upon hours just to see someone who isn’t yours anymore. You’re constantly being reminded of their new lover, but also not able to deny that things are almost like they were before. An amazing lyricist and storyteller, NIKI and her words pull at listeners’ heartstrings.
‘Nicole’ Album and Tour
“Before” is a single off NIKI’s upcoming album, Nicole. Her album, like her single, will probably return her music to its roots. Nicole will follow the release of the singer’s debut full-length album from 2020, Moonchild. Long-time lovers of the artist’s music are super excited to see her old self and new self combine and merge into one.
The singer will also have a North American tour appropriately named The Nicole Tour. This tour will be the artist’s first solo headline tour. The tickets went on sale on June 10th and sold out in minutes. Graciously, NIKI added and upgraded the venues for people to buy more tickets. Buy one here before they sell out again!
NIKI rides her high from performing at this year’s Coachella. 2022 will continue to be a momentous year for her as she not only releases an album and embarks on a solo tour, but also once again headlines the Head in the Clouds Festival. Listeners and fans are sure to look forward to all NIKI continues to bring this year.
