Megan Richardson Releases New EP- 'Sonder'
Sonder aims to encourage people to gain more perspective into other’s lives and experiences—especially if they differ from theirs.
This new five song EP was penned and produced my Megan herself. She explores a variety of sounds and lyrical moteifs that give the project a dreamy feel, all while the subject matter is very poignant. Megan chose the title "Sonder" because it means the realization that everyone around you is living a life as complex and vivid as your own. Essentially, everyone has a story.
The story in this project is told from the perspective of an African American individual trying to navigate through a racially divided country. It highlights topics such as mental health, feelings hope of desperation, and learning to move forward. The tracklist consists of "Cry to Unify", "Things We've Never Done", "Interlude", the lead single "Neighbor", and "Comfortable". Ultimately, Megan hopes that this EP will elicit deep thought and meaningful conversations between people who differ but want to have a greater connection.
"I really wanted to portray the highs and lows that many black Americans face in a way that is not linear because that is a more realistic approach"--Megan Richardson
