yeule has announced a new album. softscars is out September 22 (via Ninja Tune). Below, watch videos for two tracks, "dazies" and "fish in the pool." "dazies" will appear on the album while b-side "fish in the pool" is a cover of an instrumental track featured in 2004 Japanese movie Hana and Alice.


In a statement yeule, real name Nat Ćmiel, says: "I took the metaphor of the scar to represent each song, and each scar remains soft. Whether you’re healing from emotional trauma or a physical wound, time never heals a scar completely. There’s no more pain, but you can still see the mark afterward. I have a deep feeling that the things my ancestors went through got passed down; there’s some trauma that just sticks. There was always decay and distortion in my life, there’s always been something wrong or ugly. So the scar reminds me that I’m being protected, and I should protect myself."

softscars is the follow-up to 2022's Glitch Princess and was produced by yeule alongside collaborator Kin Leonn, with additional production from Mura Masa and Chris Greatti. Last month they released the single "sulky baby."
