Los-Angeles based Hana Vu has shared "22" as the latest single to be taken from her forthcoming new album, Romanticism.

Following “Care" and the more recent “Hammer,” Vu now presents “22", which is about the angst and dissolution of adolescence, and the liminal state of getting older and wiser while also feeling less hopeful.

“Being young, there’s so much that I experience for the first time, all the time. But as I experience more things, I become more desensitized to those things,” Vu explains. “You get wiser–– I feel quite wiser–– but less fervent, less hopeful.” She captures the contradictory feelings of youth, the luster of impermanence, in all its building wisdom, in all its funneling hope. “‘22’ is about how I was paralyzed by grief and memories and by being 22; all at once a baby and the oldest I’ve ever been. But now I'm 23 and I'll probably be 24 by the time I’ll get to perform this song for people.”

Romanticism is set for release 3 May via Ghostly International, and is available to pre-order.
