Stephanie Poetri reflects on her life with new single ‘How We Used To’

The Indonesian-American singer-songwriter has dropped her second single, ‘How We Used To’, from her forthcoming EP AM:PM via 88rising.

To complement the single, the singer has released the official music video for ‘How We Used To’.

Produced by Doc Daniel (Pink Sweat$, Tate McRae, Dominic Fike) and Mason Sacks (Kaash Paige, Masego), the music video features Stephanie journeying through a surreal dreamscape that takes form of a bedroom as she reflects on changes in her life.

In an intimate monologue, Stephanie reveals the hesitations and hardships of moving halfway across the world to pursue her career as an artist.

Speaking on ‘How We Used To’, Stephanie says,

“’How We Used To’ was the very first song that I wrote after I moved to the US to pursue my career as an artist. I was feeling so many emotions, all positive but when I had the time to slow down, sit down and songwrite I was able to process my hesitations and doubts at the time – emotions outside of this crazy excitement and adrenaline. It was a lot to take in, and I was moving halfway across the world away from home and so many loved ones to pursue my passion, dreams and career. I wouldn’t change anything for the world and am so lucky in so many ways to have had the opportunities I have, but I look back on this song fondly as it helped me understand my full range of emotions with a big step in my life”

‘How We Used To’ follows lead single ‘Selfish’ from last month. Both songs are part of her upcoming debut EP AM:PM to be released later this year.

The EP manifests the singer’s lighthearted daydreams and solemn midnight queries with the tracklist being divided into two parts – morning/AM and evening/PM. Bright acoustic sounds and harmonies kick off the start of the EP leading into elements of R&B – a sonic transition from day to night.
