Talented Singaporean singer/songwriter, Lya Ng’s debut album “New Breath – 新的呼吸”, produced by multi-talented Iranian music producer Hangi Tavakoli, is officially released on 20 February 2017. The album comprises 8 songs with different and interesting styles that will take your breath away. The 26 years old singer who was scouted by Singaporean record label, Flipside Productions in late 2015, has since released 4 single tracks and 3 music videos in 2016 with Flipside’s Iranian music producer, Hangi Tavakoli.
“New Breath – 新的呼吸” is a result of Lya’s contemporary art background and Hangi’s well established hip hop production. The producer even stepped in as rapper to do a verse of rap in Persian language in one of the songs, named “Little Puppy – 小犬犬”.
Noticeable fact about this album is Lya’s unique voice and style, which is unusual in the typical Chinese pop music industry. In addition, her strong lyrics about her very own personal life experiences added a twist to the album. What makes this album a new breath is also the injection of Middle Eastern flavoured electro-pop arrangements that yet features the uniqueness of traditional Persian music feel.
Hangi, the producer of the album who has more than 450 released songs with more than 80 different international artistes in his resume, has found the process of writing songs for “New Breath 新的呼吸” a very different experience. He explained, “Lya and I spent 3 months just sitting in the studio and playing old Persian and Chinese songs for each other in order to have a better understanding of each other’s taste. Thereafter, without much discussion, I was on my instruments doing the arrangement whilst Lya was writing the lyrics. The album was written in one month!”
