To coincide with the festival announcement is the release of “California”, the next single from 88rising’s long-awaited Head In The Clouds lll collaborative album, via 88rising/12Tone Music, LLC. Featuring 88rising flagship artists Rich Brian and NIKIand newcomer Warren Hue,“California” — the track is a sweet and catchy ode to the beautiful, sunny state of California.
“This song is about three Indonesian kids that managed to chase their dreams. Whether it’s acting, being a scientist or an architect or both, it’s all attainable,” said Rich Brian. “In this case NIKI, Warren, and I attained the same thing and that is making a career in California, which comes with its highs and lows.”
“It was so great to have gotten the opportunity to collaborate with my fellow Indonesians Rich Brian & Warren Hue. Songwriting-wise, it was the most organic coming-together between the three of us. Hope you guys enjoy it!” shared NIKI.
“The verse I wrote included the reality of being Asian in America and how I see California as a whole,” said Warren Hue. “The process of making this song was interesting because it shows the perspective of three Indonesians talking about America and it’s definitely a fun project.”
