South London singer/songwriter, Meron T, has just gifted us with her second single ‘Can We’, taken from her forthcoming debut EP, Mirage, out early October.

This comes after the release of the ultra smooth, ‘Hunny’, last August and in the same vein ‘Can We’ features a lush Neo-soul production from Paya, with Meron T lacing the enchanting keys with sweet sounding vocals concerned with a toxic, yet all-encompassing affection for a troublesome love interest.

Speaking to RWD on the background of the track, Meron T told us:” ‘Can We’ is about loving someone despite knowing that they’re no good for you. It’s the thought that pops into your head when deciding to walk away, for your best interest, or give the love another go because you struggle to contemplate a reality outside of it.

“I wrote this song just after coming back from Masego’s European tour, as one of his backing vocalists. After tour, I was super inspired and wanted to channel that creative energy, but was also very sad. The end of tour not only meant leaving the musical magic, but it also meant saying goodbye to somebody that I was falling for. The only way to cure these blues was to get lost in creating. So as soon as I got back, I went to the studio with a few beats a friend had made, and this one stood out in particular. Before I knew it, I layered a bunch of harmonies onto it, and had completely fallen in love with it. That was in November 2018. It has been a long road to get the song to this point, ready for your ears – so it’s truly a special one.”

Take in the soulful sounds of ‘Can We’ below and look forward to the release of Meron T’s upcoming project Mirage.
