This Friday, April 7, Yaeji will be unveiling her first studio LP, With a Hammer. In the lead-up to the momentous release, the singer has shared a few singles off of the project, including “Done (Let’s Get It)” and “For Granted.”

Today, Yaeji returns with “Passed Me By,” a futuristic song consisting of both English and Korean lyrics. The track arrives with a music video directed by Enayet and Zanzie that sees the singer address a version of her younger self.

“’Passed Me By’… at least musically came together really fast and that’s usually how my workflow goes,” Yaeji told Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe. “First came the bass that you hear in the intro. When I sing the lines ‘today has been a little weak, a little strong, I light a little fire,’ there was no beat at the time so I wrote the bass and wrote the words somewhat simultaneously which was unusual for me.”

She went on to describe the thoughtful single as “the first time I felt like I had expressed something I couldn’t in either Korean or English through sonics, through music.”

Stream Yaeji’s new song “Passed Me By” and watch the official music video above. With A Hammer is out in full this Friday, April 7.
