Paying homage to her critically acclaimed debut single “Something Beautiful”, which was purely acoustic and burst her onto the scene, garnering support from MTV UK, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, SoulBounce and VEVO, among others, Scottish-born singer-songwriter emaé is proud to announce her brand new fully acoustic EP titled Imperfect Words, premiered via AFROPUNK.


Written, arranged and produced by emaé, recorded and mixed by David McEwan (Plan B, Cirque du Soleil, Nitin Sawhney) and executive produced by Oroh Angiama (Corinne Bailey Rae, Professor Green), the Imperfect Words EP also features collaborations with Gershom Mutambo and Courtney Jones on acoustic guitars, Charles DC Hall on Cajon and percussion, and Ivan Hussey (Annie Lennox, Mick Jagger, Duran Duran) on Cello.


The EP opens with an arresting call to action on “Talk” as emaé sings, “there’s no need to talk anymore […] show me what you’re good for”, before the infectious “Northern Lights” captures the imagination with its hopeful and encouraging sentiment. Inspired by Maya Angelou, “Why It Sings” reveals an introspective emaé as she battles a perceived rejection from those closest to her, while an acoustic version of previous single “Know You” closes out the 4-track offering.
