London based singer/songwriter and producer Jahna Sebastian releases a free new track from her upcoming mixtape “The Other Side”. The track is called “Upgrade” and it’s about the moment when you realize that you want to get to the next level and there are certain things that pushes you towards achieving that goal. Jahna states, ” I’m just really having fun with this mixtape, working with different flows. Some lyrics will be personal while other tracks will be based on observations, getting more into various characters and their stories”.
Jahna further states, “The Other Side” name is really a description of literal or physical travel in order for a complete change to happen, taking that step and getting that extra courage in place. One of the major changes that happened in my life like that was moving alone secretly from Moscow to London. Usually there is a strong catalyst for a big change”.
“The Other Side” mixtape is set for a December release after her next EP drops.
