ROKI Releases New Song “Hands Up”
Canadian singer-songwriter ROKI released a new song “Hands Up” on October 4, 2023.
The song is the second single off of her upcoming EP “Lovable”, following “The One” released in September.
The track was written by ROKI and Tea Petrovic. Produced by Ben Kaplan.
“During a fight with my partner, I realized the argument wasn't going anywhere constructive. It was late and nothing was being resolved, but despite being upset, I still felt overwhelming love. It was at that moment I decided not to fight anymore, because it was more important to go to bed at peace, ROKI explained. “There's always going to be ups and downs when you want to make your relationship work. Part of it is navigating the ebbs and flows with grace and understanding, and sometimes that means you have to put your hands up and say 'that's enough.'”
- She continued, “After that specific argument between me and my partner, I had a writing session already set up with a songwriter friend of mine, Tea Petrovic. I always loved her solo music and I was excited to finally be writing with her and collaborating on a song together. With my new inspiration from the previous night, the song writing process flowed so naturally and easily with Tea, we clicked right away, and the song came together in a couple hours.”
She added, “This is the second song from my forthcoming EP called Lovable, which was produced by singer/songwriter Ben Kaplan. The EP has an overall theme of trying to make love work, and I'm so excited to share it with you.”
The new EP is expected to be released later this year.
