Ego Ella May Searches For 'Home' In New Single

Intrinsically weaving the worlds of neo-soul and contemporary jazz compositions, South London songwriter and vocalist Ego Ella May reveals her new single ‘How Long Til’ We’re Home’, released today on UpperRoom Records. The single follows up ‘Girls Don’t Always Sing About Boys’, featured on our 'Mellow Drama' Spotify playlist both of which are taken from Ego Ella May’s highly anticipated debut album ‘Honey For Wounds’, released this spring. Ella continues her lyrical diversity by crooning elegantly about her place in the world pondering about her distance from a place of comfort.

Born in London to Nigerian parents, on the beautifully written ‘How Long Til’ We’re Home’, Ego Ella May’s honey soaked vocals focuses on home and it’s various meanings, Ego explains “The song is about feeling lost about your place in the world, it's about longing for somewhere that FEELS like home… I wondered where is home anyway? Too African for Britain, too British for Africa”. Ego Ella May's latest offering is a beautifully soulful record with a high level of replay value in times of reflection and relaxation. We are all ears for what the talented songstress has on offer for her next project.

Ego Ella May will exclusively perform tracks from her debut album ‘Honey For Wounds’ live in London at The Courtyard Theatre on 20th May, tickets are available here.
