Montreal, QC hip-hop/rapper/R&B artist Hua Li recently released her quarantine love song "Four More Days". This single is based on the distance she lives from her family in Wuhan combined with a sense of longing she feels at all times in her romantic life. The song is a part of her EP that she had begun recording late last year and finished writing at the Banff Centre, dedicating it to her mother's hometown Wuhan.
She states, "I am plagued by short, intense, whirlwind romances on the road and this song has to do with the feeling of wishing for more time in proximity with someone you feel strongly for in order to build a more substantial relationship. When the quarantine hit in March, these ideas crystallized very quickly and turned into the song you hear today."
Alexander Thibault (Gloze) produced this song, adding luscious synths to the Kawai grand piano she recorded during her residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity. They adapted the process due to social distancing guidelines, with Alex tracking the live drums and bass remotely, after which she recorded vocals in her Montreal home studio.
"Even when we miss someone and are sad about not being around them, that type of love and energy is special. We should feel good about having people to miss when we have to stay at home. I hope that when you listen to “Four More Days,” you are able to access the ways in which desire can be really uplifting."
