EXCLUSIVE: Yumi Nu Chats About “25”

After releasing her debut EP, ‘Hajime,’ back in May, Yumi Nu is back with new music. Her latest single, “25,” is an ode to all of the trials and tribulations that she’s faced throughout her 25 years of life. The “Bouquets” singer continues to show off her creativity on “25” by effortlessly blending genres and capturing her most vulnerable emotions through remarkable songwriting. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, Yumi Nu opens up about the inspiration behind her latest single and what she hopes to achieve before the end of this year.

What can you tell us about your new single “25” and the inspiration behind it?

25″ is an ode to who I was up to this point. I just turned 26, but at 25, I feel I learned so many solidifying lessons that gave me more confidence and trust in who I am.

Do you typically draw inspiration for your music from your own life or from other people’s stories and different forms of art?

Typically from my life, but occasionally I’ll write a song about a friend’s situation if my life isn’t offering any juicy inspiration.

How does this particular single differ from the music you have released in the past?

I feel this single is probably the most happy and hopeful song I’ve ever put out. Most of the songs I write come from a place of pain or an emotion I’m really itching to get out, but “25” was a song that came from a place of reflection and peace, which was a very healing thing to experience.

For fans who just discovered your music, what do you want them to know about you and the music you create?

I want them to know that my music is a true reflection of me. Music is truly an emotional outlet and vessel of self expression for me. So, I hope people connect with it. I want my music to be whatever people need it to be for them, even if it’s just for a season of their life. I want it to be a resource in whatever way people find it to be.

Are there any artists you hope to collaborate with in the future?

I’d love to collaborate with more small indie artists like myself!

As the end of 2022 approaches, is there anything you hope to accomplish before 2023? 

Before 2022 ends, I hope to wrap up my next project while also getting some good rest and relaxation before the new year!
