August 29, 2018

DENA is a singer, songwriter, and producer making clever, dreamy pop music, often focused on experiencing love in the digital age. Her latest single is "HMU," which is "about telepathy and telephones." The song is the latest single from her forthcoming album, If It's Written. It's something of a manifestation, an attempt to will someone into hitting you up at the right moment, through hypnotic vocals and mellow production. Today, she's debuting its stylish clip, shot in and around Sofia, Bulgaria.

"Earlier this summer I went to Bulgaria, where I’m originally from. I was really amazed by the visual and architectural atmosphere in Sofia, the country's capital, and spent a week there visiting friends. The city is so edgy and full with contrast," she says. "We decided to capture some of the surroundings and combine them with ‘HMU,’ a song I wrote and produced for my new album, back in Berlin. It’s a song about telepathy and telephones, which are some of the central topics on my upcoming record If It’s Written.”

Watch above and stay tuned for the album, out on September 14 via Mansions and Millions.
