Singaporean producer and singer-songwriter yams will be releasing his full album, day/dreams on all major digital streaming platforms on 21 May 2021. In celebration of the release, yams has announced an online listening party to countdown and celebrate the release of the album.
The album is presented as a dual narrative, exploring imperfect oppositions – day and dream, leaving and loving, runaway and home. When presented together, these things reveal much about the space in between.
yams explains, “When I started writing this album, I had three goals in mind – to present an alternative masculinity, to present something authentic, and to discuss issues not often discussed in the local music scene. Through this album, I hope listeners have a think about what dreaming means to them, what it means to be able to ‘dream’. As part of a young generation that is still finding its path and purpose, I hope that by asking myself these questions through this album of what home means to me and what does it mean to dream, I can inspire others to begin asking themselves these questions as well.”
For the launch, yams commissioned 10 artists of different mediums, each crafting animations reflecting and responding to songs and themes of the album. The listening party will showcase all of their emotive and moving work, each paired with a song from day/dreams.
Be among the first to hear yams’ newest music, ahead of the album’s release on all streaming platforms on the 21st of May.
