Shura returns with new single 'BKLYNLDN'

Having let three years pass since the release of her brilliant debut album 'Nothing's Real', Shura has now broken her silence to unveil the first new track to be lifted from her highly-anticipated sophomore full-length.

The new single 'BKLYNLDN' is the first taste of her long-awaited new album, which is currently still in the works, and has been made available through her new home on Secretly Canadian.

Speaking about her return, she added, “With ‘BKLYNLDN’ I wanted to explore having both a sonic & lyrical evolution. It’s about desire - playing with the idea of it being all consuming and at times overwhelming. It starts with the immediacy of physical desire - ‘this isn’t love’ and yet as the song unfolds that sentiment begins to unravel; I am clearly in love and instead of my girlfriend coming to London, I end up moving Brooklyn. I wanted to capture that reversal and for me that section feels like my summer, skipping through Brooklyn, holding hands with my girlfriend and singing out loud without caring about how stupid you look.”
