West-London based artist Matilda Mann has announced a new EP, Sonder, and released the EP’s first single, ‘Stranger (For Now)’.
“‘Stranger (For Now)’, is based off the relationship between Jim and Pam from the USA Office,” Mann explains in a press release. “It’s about how they kept missing each other, as the other one was always in a relationship, but they both know that they should be together. Sometimes you just need a little bit of time with the wrong person to know who’s right for you.”
Mann is just coming off a run supporting Holly Humberstone and will share the stage with Essex singer-songwriter Dodie later this month. Mann will also headline a show at London’s Lafayette on October 6th to celebrate the release of Sonder.
“Sonder means the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own,” Mann continues. “For me, this was something I realised while in the middle of lockdown. I had all the time in the world to take a step back and see how other people lived their lives, in a way I hadn’t thought of before. I named the EP Sonder because each song was either written about someone else, or for someone else. All the tracks were written this year, and I was writing a lot for friends going through a hard time and trying to make a song they could relate to.”
