Shaé Universe has released a brand new track entitled, 111. The Hertfordshire artist’s talent continues to intrigue, with an array of the industry’s finest queuing up to create tracks with her.
111, a nod to the concept of angel numbers and their spiritual awakenings, is a luscious slice of soul that bears a profoundly personal message for the 25-year-old singer-songwriter. With a syncopated melody consisting of delicate riffs, simmering 808’s and soaring synth patterns, Shae’s silky vocals capture the depth of the song’s meaning, as celestial harmonies cushion her every word. The lyrics tell of the power that manifestation and desire can bring into one’s life, an experience that Shaé Universe opened up to late last year that inspired the track.
Listen to the full track below:
Shaé explains: “111 is a number that found me in November 2020 when I visited Brooklyn, New York for the first time. It was my first solo trip as ShaeUniverse and at the time I had no idea that these numbers would become so significant in my life. My door number whilst I was out there was 111 and when I got back to the UK, I randomly started to see it everywhere, every day. It got so mind-boggling that I had to research it. I discovered that many people around the world also see that number and it’s said to present itself at a time of elevation, transition or awakening in one’s life. It’s also globally known to be a sign that you are on the right path, and exactly where you are meant to be at this moment in time. The day I wrote ‘111’ I opened my voice note recording app in the studio, as I usually do, to record some melodies as I listened to the beat play. After recording the melodies I looked down to press stop and noticed that it was my111th voice note. At that moment I knew that whatever I wrote in that session was to be centered around synchronicity. And there you have it, 111”.
