Surinamese/Dutch folk-pop singer-songwriter Neomi Speelman, has unveiled her highly-anticipated debut EP ‘before’ alongside the captivating new single ‘redemption’.

néomí is a helluva writer. ‘redemption’ is impeccably written as she shares with us, her love for her family. And if you’re lucky like her to have such a great family in your life, this song will resonate. Every word she sings I can feel and it puts a smile on my face.

Speaking about the track, néomí said:

“I wrote redemption with a smile on my face which doesn’t happen that often. This song is just truly a thank you to my family. I have so much love for them. I am grateful for the culture my mother gave me, the wisdom my father passed on and the life lessons my sister taught me. This song is about the nostalgic feeling of being younger and feeling safe with my family. It is about asking for forgiveness for not understanding how precious family is, and about understanding how precious family is. It is me telling them “I would do anything to give them back the years they had my back”. And a promise I will have theirs forever.”

Love that.

Hear the song below.
