Kicking off the year with the final installment in her Antonio Vivaldi-inspired seasonal project, soulful South Londoner MEI shares the dulcet single “I Don’t Know What’s Next”. Taken from the winter-influenced EP No Steps Back, the track is a heart-warming ode to self-love.

Written and produced with long-time collaborator Joy Anonymous, the single features a mellow drum groove and underlying tranquil melody that swaddles its listener into a warm embrace. Steadying the anxieties surrounding the unpredictability of life, “I Don’t Know What’s Next” offers a calming remedy for self-healing and acceptance.  

“”I Don’t Know What’s Next” is the most personal song I’ve ever written,” explains MEI. “Not sure I’m ready to share it, but that’s also exactly why I need to. The relationship you have with yourself is so important and this song documents my personal growth. That’s never comfortable but honesty is liberating. I’m transformed because of this song and I hope it touches people the way it has touched me.”

Recently featuring on Calibro 35’s latest LP release and lending her writing talents to Husky Loops on their debut album I Can’t Even Speak English, as well as securing a feature on the coveted FIFA 19 soundtrack, MEI has also been awarded the Women Make Music Fund by the PRS Foundation.

MEI’s EP No Steps Back is out this Friday (28th).
