Above lies a full stream of my debut album, The Longing.
The Longing expands the dystopian city I built on the Fantasy Nation EP, making way for a full-fledged love story in a hazy metropolis circa the year 2036.
"Somewhere in a bleak, run-down Tokyo neighborhood, someone drifts through the crowds, holograms, and faded neon to reunite with a loved one he hasn't seen in years. In this vast metropolis of millions, loneliness has become his prison. The longing he has felt for her and the memories of what-could-be become his only reality.."
