SoCal songbird Fana Hues is having a big year. Following the release of her second album flora + fana earlier this year, she went on tours with fellow singer-songwriters Raveena and Giveon before recently headlining her own show at The Echo in Los Angeles. This summer, she teamed up with R&B duo THEY. for their single “Comfortable” and was recently tapped by SoundCloud to be a part of their Scenes: SoCal Soul mini-documentary. Now, the artist gifts her adoring fanbase with the deluxe edition of flora + fana. The lush and lovely project continues along her journey through the evolution of love and life, ultimately arriving at a place of resilience and contentment.
Hues' flora + fana (deluxe) comes with three new tracks joining lead single “wild horses” and “breakfast,” which she performed on COLORS. There's the heartbreak anthem “yours” and a cover of the Stevie Wonder classic “never dreamed you’d leave in summer.” The trio of new additions is rounded out by the song “float,” accompanied by a performance video directed by Henry R. Jones II.
Though these tracks are aligned with her theme of navigating her way through heartbreak, she was intentional about offering a contrast. “I focused on building a lush sonic world with beds of harmonies and layered production on flora + fana; I wanted to dial it down and return to sweet simplicity for the deluxe,” she explained to IMPRINT Entertainment.
