NIKI Releases New Song “Split” from New Album “Head In The Clouds III”
- Indonesian singer-songwriter NIKI released a new song “Split” along with a music video on November 19, 2021.
The song follows up “Every Summertime” and will appear on label 88rising's upcoming compilation album “Head In The Clouds III”.
It was written by Bēkon, Jacob Ray and NIKI. Produced by The Donuts, Bēkon and Jacob Ray. The video was directed by Sean Matsuyama.
NIKI shared on social media, “i wrote it in 2019 w Jacob Ray it was initially written for moonchild but i took it off bc it felt way too personal & special & needed its own life. i wrote it ab forever having to split myself between indo & LA & feeling like i have to constantly 'split the difference' or adapt/assimilate all the time. its a song ab home/identity or maybe the struggle to find either. its very very personal and i hope u guys love it as much as i do!“
- She said of the inspiration for the song, “It started with me working on Moonchild, i found myself saying the phrase, 'let's split the difference' A LOT in the studio, it sorta became an inside joke so i wrote it down in my notes and later realized that's basically how i've felt most of my life. 'splitting the difference' within myself a lot to adapt. most recent example being that i'm split between indonesia & LA and having 2 homes has brought forth its own set of challenges as u can imagine.”
