Said to be Rainie’s most honest album. the sweet songbird releases ‘Delete Reset Grow’, her eleventh studio album after a three year wait.
A lot has happened since we last saw and heard of Rainie. Now a 35 year-old and no longer the mushroom-haired girl we remembered, this album captures much of the essence of her thirties as she gains a clearer idea of what is really important.
Going off the word play of ‘刪’ (Delete/Shan) and ‘拾’ (Reset/Shi) sounding very similar to ’30’ in Mandarin, Yang takes the opportunity to ‘Delete’ the unnecessary and to ‘Reset’ her courage and take control of her future with this ten-song album.
Intimately discussing every aspect of the album with her producers and writers, Yang drills down on how to vocalise most fully her thoughts and expressions of the human experience.
The album includes previously released singles such as ethereal title track ‘Delete Reset’ produced by Sandee Chan陳珊妮 and wistful, introspective track ‘Celebration of Oneself’ by Peggy Hsu 許哲珮.
A star-studded album including tracks written by Lala Hsu 徐佳瑩, Lumi 許含光, Waa Wei 魏如萱, Cheer Chen 陳綺貞 and OZI, Yang digs deep so that she can keep on giving.
Rainie Yang’s latest album is available on all major streaming platforms now.
