Yaya Bey announces new EP ‘Exodus The North Star’

The six-track project follows last year’s album, ‘Remember Your North Star’.

Following the release of her 2022 album ‘Remember Your North Star’, Yaya Bey has announced that she’ll be sharing her new EP ‘Exodus The North Star’ on 24th March via Big Dada. “‘Exodus the North Star’ is my most vulnerable work to date,” Yaya explains. “This is how I see joy and love in the world and what I aspire to feel and be. I have become an expert at turning my pain and grief as a black woman into music. Black people have a masterful way of telling our stories and sharing pain, but we’re also masters of joy and imagination. We have always been in a global conversation about how to alchemize our experiences and reimagine our circumstances. From the ties between Lovers Rock and R&B to Gospel and House. Our joy is a collective effort. “I rarely write about what I would like my existence to be in this world. This is a new level of vulnerability for me. Proclaiming my desires. What I’ve come to learn I deserve. This is my thank you to my people: my peers, the elders and the ancestors for being in this work with me. Cheers to the future.” ‘Exodus the North Star’ EP Tracklisting: 1. exodus the north star 2. on the pisces moon 3. when saturn returns 4. munerah 5. 12 houses down 6. ascendent (mother fxcker) (feat.
