Demie Cao has returned, releasing her latest single ‘Circles’ in collaboration with label-mate Justin Park.
The new track embodies a relationship that that has already fallen apart, long past broken, and yet both sides are still trying to hang on. Demie sought to capture that moment in a relationship when partners are sleeping 3 inches away but mentally and emotionally are miles away from one another and are not ready to openly admit it yet.
Also released today was the ‘Circles’ music video, which was directed by Demie herself.
‘Circles’ is not the first time that this duo have worked together on their music. Justin was featured in Demie’s music video for her single, ‘YUNG’. Conversely, Demie was featured in Justin’s recent music video for his single ‘Adore You, Dior You’ with Ted Park.
Speaking on the collaboration, Justin tells us that, “I remember I was in the studio one day, and Demie had just come to record her new song. Me being my curious self, I stayed around a little while to get a sneak peek of this record, and I’m just mad that no one had warned me of how FIRE this was going to be. I haven’t felt so natural writing a song in so long. I absolutely felt like myself working on this record.”
Similarly, Demie tells us, “Working with Justin just came really naturally. We’ve known each other since like high school, so it was a truly fun and organic collaboration. I had a chorus and verse down for the track already, and Justin just came into the studio and wanted to freestyle a verse as well, so that’s just what happened!”
