Julien Chang’s new Single, ‘Home For The Moment’Listen Now
Julien Chang today announces a brand new EP, Home For The Moment – a collection of four songs that releases 1 March, including the lead single, the EP’s title track, “Home For The Moment”, which is out today, 31 January, via Transgressive.
Performed, composed, and produced by Julien, Home For The Moment is a candidly brilliant expression of the emotions he feels in the transition from school to what comes next. “I wrote it from a position “stuck” in between my past and future, and I was therefore irretrievably, obsessively, preoccupied with both.”
Julien Chang elaborates, “these four songs are a candid document of a special moment in my life, and although they are concerned with the complications of this “in-between” time of one’s early twenties, they are also imbued with the confidence and excitement inspired by deep love, long friendships, and energetic community. To say it another way, it is about Baltimore, my home, and the people who live there.”.
The EP’s lead single, the title track “Home For The Moment” is direct and personal, flanked by three intricate guitars beneath Julien’s emotive vocals that build towards the wistful sound. The song is unveiled alongside a nostalgic Lydia Cornett directed video that merges modern visuals and older camcorder footage and blends the aesthetics together seamlessly. ““Home for the Moment” – that is, home for now, soon to leave, at some point anyway, long to decide, under an implicit and self-imposed prohibition against getting too comfortable. It’s a song about returning home and slowing down–against my will but for my soul.”
