Amerie is back — again. The 38-year-old singer has returned with not one, but two new EPs: 4AM Mulholland and After 4AM. Shying away from a commercial sound, the double project explores a darker side of Amerie that many people may not be used to. “The funny thing to me, I’ve always felt like my music is dark — even when no one else thinks that,” Amerie told Billboard in an interview.
She later added, “I love my projects to be very sonically cohesive. As I was recording, I wasn’t trying to limit myself in any way, I was feeling very, very creative — I had just came off of writing a new story and I wanted to go full-out into the recording process. I didn’t want the album to be a smorgasbord of sound, it needs to have a vibe and that’s why there’s two projects.”
4AM Mulholland and After 4AM is the follow-up to Amerie’s 2016 EP, Drive.
