Breakout star Ella Vos will share her highly anticipated second album Turbulence on July 17. Today, she debuts a new track from the album “Mistakes, they catch up” alongside a video, premiering via FLOOD Magazine—watch here. Vos cowrote the track with frequent Frank Ocean and Solange collaborator John Carroll Kirby.
“Every time I try to run from my mistakes, they catch up,” Vos says. “This song is about recognizing my tendency to self-sabotage and how I make things harder than they need to be. This song is me standing on the top of an ash covered hillside, ready to start anew. I think of that ash on the hillside often, as I’ve witnessed many wildfires growing up in California. The ash is a reminder of the power of nature, the mistakes we’ve made as humans, and the ability to transform and make something good after destruction. To me, it reflects the painful, yet necessary process of learning from our past in order to change our future.”
