Music knows no borders, as evidenced by Malaysian singer-songwriter Froya and Japanese pop outfit Uqiyo's upcoming collaborative single, invisible.
It all started when Froya met with the band members of Uqiyo for a co-writing session at Niigata, Japan, in early 2020.
“Having family and friends from and currently living in Niigata, I was very familiar with the city. This time, I tried to see Niigata through Froya’s eyes as it was her first-time experiencing snow, and the city. I wanted to express this experience in an infinitely detailed and deeply layered manner," Uqiyo frontman Yuqi Kato recalls the inspiration for the song in a press statement.
The single is available on all streaming platforms beginning March 5. It is part of Uqiyo's full-length album, slated for release on March 26.
Besides being an accomplished singer-songwriter, Froya, whose real name is Michelle Lee, also works behind the scenes as a composer, writing theme songs and scores for TV commercials and films.
Froya has worked on a number of local and international projects in the past including scoring the Malaysian action film, Polis Evo 2, and the Netflix series, The Ghost Bride.
