Lucinda Chua Is Reclaiming The Rose

Following the release of her critically-acclaimed debut album YIAN earlier this year, Lucinda Chua has shared a brand new 3-Track EP, Reclaiming The Rose, out now via 4AD

“Following the release of YIAN, I had the opportunity to perform my music and connect with new audiences across Europe and Asia. Reclaiming The Rose is a bi-lingual meditation exploring ideas of returning, remembering and retracing ancestral roots. I was inspired by the journey of the rose; a plant indigenous to China that made its way to the UK in the 1700s. I met the artist and poet He Sun at a music festival in Italy and found a kinship with one of her poems. I wanted to set these words to music, to hear the words spoken in both their English and Mandarin form. I asked my friend Xiaoqiao to join me on the final song.”
