Enigmatic, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter, Yaya Bey, is releasing her upcoming album Remember Your North Star, her most expansive work to date, on 17th June 2022 via Big Dada, available on clear blue LP and cassette. Remember Your North Star is a body of work that showcases Yaya's experimental approach to R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz, Reggae and Afrobeat music. The album explores the landscape of Black music via Yaya's storyteller approach and examines themes of romantic turbulence, female empowerment, fraught parental relationships and self-actualization, with production primarily from Yaya, Aja Grant (of Phony Ppl) and DJ Nativesun. Yaya's lyricism and unfiltered approach shine through with her new LP. Her previous EP, The Things I Can't Take With Me, which centred around similar themes received high praise from publications such as, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, FADER, Noisey, Harper's Bazaar, and more. With Pitchfork describing Yaya's "flow [as] poised and unhurried." Yaya has also garnered fans and co-signs from the likes of Moses Sumney, Phony Ppl, James Blake, Kota The Friend, Mndsgn, and more. Yaya has performed live at AFROPUNK and in 2016 she played an intimate show with Sofar Sounds. Forthcoming live shows include opening for Mndsgn at Elsewhere NYC on March 21st playing all released tracks with more dates to be announced in the US & EU.
