milet’s comments on 3rd album “5am”
“5am = 5 in the morning
What does this time mean for you? Perhaps it is the time when many of you are sleeping or just awakening. 5am is a special time for me when I can feel myself one-on-one, with a mixture of hope, loneliness, anxiety, and ambiguity.
Sometimes I see the morning glow from the window and get excited about today’s day, and sometimes I wish the night happens to be back again. It is morning for someone, and night for someone.
5am, when I miss you, 5am, when I am happy on my way home, 5am, when I am exhausted the morning after an all-night vigil, and 5am on my bed alone, immersed in the world of books, not wanting anyone to disturb me. I love myself at any 5am.
The album “5am” is a playlist that depicts my inner mind. I wish these songs could get into the cracks of your heart and make sounds in your time.”
