Shushu is releasing Sweet verses dying like roses via Genome 6.66 Mbp on June 18, with preview track ‘im not okay (User2222 remix)’ premiering today on AQNB. The eight-track record is the Paris-based artist’s appearances on High Heal and ISENGARD, reflecting a somber-romantic outlook on young adulthood, love, and homesickness.

Similar to the record’s first single, ‘Something You Don’t Need To Know’, User2222 transforms ‘im not okay’ into a subdued yet intimate rendition for the Chinese artist’s vocals to take center stage. The original’s Seether guitar samples and baile funk beats get swapped for rather reserved MIDI-piano and synth lines emphasizing Shushu’s lyrics. The line, “don’t look at me like the way you see through,” seeps through the reverberated AutoTune as the track takes on a particularly personal meaning.**

Shushu’s Sweet verses dying like roses is out via Genome 6.66 Mbp on June 18.
