Hot and fresh out of the Singaporean kitchen is Jason Yu, who has recently dropped his debut single, “Hearts Release” along with a music video!
“Hearts Release” came to be about a story of two people falling in love, but neither one having the courage to show or reveal their love to the other. Jason wanted to write a song deemed relatable to most people:
"'Hearts Release' was inspired by one of my own personal experiences, but it's also a familiar story to most. Writing this song was very much just putting my thoughts onto paper, once I had the melody the words flowed out naturally."
Asia-wide hits are streaming 24/7! Head on over to our 'Listen' page!
The fantastic track is accompanied by a debut music video, directed by Melbourne-based multi-award winning wedding cinematographer, Aldin Ortinez.
“The story of the MV differs from the original narrative of the song but it still manages to capture the meaning behind the track; The beauty of two people falling in love, represented by the dynamism brought about by lush landscape shots throughout” explains Jason. The music video stars the singer-songwriter himself, as well as actress/social influencer Ellena Young.
Jason Yu has soothing vocals and an endearing presence similar to Ed Sheeran, Bright Eyes, and James Bay. Jason has long established himself in the Singaporean busking scene with his ability to charm his way into anyone’s heart (especially mine). He hopes to bring his audiences on a journey through the struggles of heartbreak, religion and finding his place in the world.
"Hearts Release" by Jason Yu is available on all digital platforms. Listen to it on iTunes, Spotify and Apple Music now!
