Full release delivered on release date: 05.17.24

Wu-Lu has shared heartfelt new single Daylight Song, his first release since his acclaimed 2022 debut album, LOGGERHEAD. Watch the accompanying video here

Wu-Lu describes Daylight Song as; “a chant for the ones coming and the ones lost. This is a song to clarify that we've all got it in us to be better everyday".

Daylight Song is the soaring lead single from the South London vocalist and musician’s forthcoming EP, Learning To Swim On Empty, out 17th May on Warp Records. The visual is directed by returning collaborator, Ethan Barrett (Jeshi, The Murder Capital, Flohio).

Both Daylight Song and Learning To Swim On Empty demonstrate the growing depth and range of Wu-Lu’s sound. Whilst his breakthrough, anti-gentrification anthem South and widely-praised LOGGERHEAD album were largely fuelled by an explosive energy, this new material finds Wu-Lu taking a more nuanced, personal approach.

Learning To Swim On Empty plays like a series of diary entries and is inspired by growing up in Brixton, death and loss, and the sink-or-swim feeling of being thrown in at the deep end - the EP also features poet and artist Rohan Ayinde and award winning author and former young people’s laureate for London, Caleb Femi.
