Album cover art for Milan Ring with vinyl record popping outOn her anticipated debut, rising Sydney-based star Milan Ring defies expectations by not only writing but recording, executive producing and mixing the record in its entirety.

Effortlessly weaving from a rapped verse to a soaring harmony, Milan Ring’s vocal is as multifaceted as the many different sounds explored on the record, with the album’s blend of hip hop, R&B, rock and gospel always daring, but most of all masterfully executed.

Whether she’s singing about mental health or relationships, Milan Ring’s candour shines as much as her collaborations with Barkaa, BLESSED and Jean Deaux excite. An enthralling listen, I’m Feeling Hopeful is an ambitious first offering that is nothing short of impressive.

I’m Feeling Hopeful by Milan Ring is out Dec 3 via Astral People/PIAS.
