Filipina alternative R&B singer August Wahh has released a new single titled “Elated” described as a song about recovering one’s self.

“I wrote ‘Elated’ as a reminder to myself and to others that no matter what you’ve been through, the goal is to rise above situations that made you feel small — by accepting where you’ve been and the journey you’re on, even if you don’t know where you’re going,” Ms. Wahh said in the release.

“It’s a reminder to own yourself and live life to the fullest,” she added.

Ms. Wahh released her first single, “Know What I Want,” in December 2019. Her newest single is said to make for “both easy casual listening and soulful rumination.”

The song was produced by King Puentespina, better known by the moniker crwn.

“The song was basically written on the spot. crwn had a beat he played, and I wrote along it. On the same day, we recorded ‘Elated,’” Ms. Wahh said.

This isn’t the first time the two artists collaborated as Ms. Wahh and Mr. Puentespina worked together on the song “Gaslight” last year.

Ms. Wahh’s music is known for promoting self-worth which is part of her personal mantra.

“She asks rhetorically ‘does it matter where I go?’ while also guaranteeing to own every decision she makes, tackling the age-old question with emotional openness and introspection,” the statement read.

August Wahh’s new single “Elated” is out on streaming and digital platforms worldwide. The YouTube lyric video can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYgsI1-2518
