Jasmine Sokko returns with her new single ‘HURT’. The banger melds her penchant for melancholic lyrics with fiery beats and talks about getting hurt by tough love in a relationship. Written and produced by the enigmatic singer, the song delves deep into a new music direction for Jasmine Sokko as she fully embraces her love for electronic pop.
She shares, “In life, the person you care about will hurt you because they were trying to be honest. A person’s intention is something that can never truly be transferred. It’s just created and understood. Their actions might come from a good place but you could perceive it in a different way. In my case, I wanted to do the same to the person who unintentionally hurt me – just so they’ll understand. It’s a bit petty but it was how I felt at the time.”
Jasmine Sokko divulges that she has gone through a long period of writer’s block, sharing, “I couldn’t do anything for three months. ‘HURT’ came and flowed so naturally. I wrote the song in one session and it made it clear why I do what I do. I played it for my friend and we both cried. It’s very honest.”
‘HURT’ is released under exclusive license to Warner Music Singapore for Asian territories and KnightVision Records for the rest of the world on Friday 24 August 2018.
