YUCIFER returns with the anthemic ‘Staring At The Ceiling’

The new single is available to stream and download now

Following on from the praise he received for his previously shared tracks ‘Racks’ and ‘Fvckgirl’, which found him placed on numerous Spotify playlists over the last few months, rising rapper YUCIFER now returns with his latest banger ‘Staring At The Ceiling’.

Produced and written by the man himself, ‘Staring At The Ceiling’ is a bold and anthemic return for the frontman. Blending high-energy beats with his own rapid-fire flow, his newest release is the one-stop-shop to get the party moving this summer.

Speaking about his new single, he said, “‘Staring at the Ceiling’ is about feeling empty, gutted. It is a single about emotional emptiness and uncertainty in life. I don’t know why it’s an emotion I’ve grown particularly familiar with but it has been and so I wrote about it. 

The song verbalises a time period of emotional emptiness and confusion with regards to life and the direction I wanted to take for myself at that point in time. I don’t ask the listener to provide an answer but present the questions and invite them to ‘get closer, feel’ what I am feeling. I feel that in relating to what others feel, we can also learn more about ourselves, and so everyone should try to be a bit more empathic, a bit better listener… things like that. 

I don’t feel anything particular about it, or towards it. It is not an emotion I would like to hold on to… but it’s done enough to me that I wanted to dedicate a record to it. I kind of put these things on record to precisely let them go…”
