Ahead of Nicki Wells poignant Ellipsis LP, Nicki shares evocative Bulgarian folk-inspired single I Have Longed To Be Here

Written by Divine Magazine

‘I Have Longed To Be Here’ is the latest single from the forthcoming debut album Ellipsis from Nicki Wells, following her recent singles ‘Carry On’ and ‘You’re Alright Kid’

Showcasing her spectacular vocals and drawing influences from Indian classical and Bulgarian folk music, ‘I Have Longed To Be Here’ shows another side to this talented artist. The songwriter, composer, producer and singer, who travelled the world as part of Nitin Sawhney’s band, is swiftly establishing herself in her own right as a classic English songwriter with a unique vocal talent. Nicki has already gained support from the likes of Songwriting Magazine, Notion, BBC 6Music’s Chris Hawkins, BBC Introducing and many more. Her sound is simply beautiful, traversing styles of chill, emotional, dreamy, orchestral, folk, singer-songwriter and meditative.

Of the new single, Nicki Wells shares this introspective insight: “I Have Longed To Be Here is about the notion that we have consciously or unconsciously chosen to be exactly where we are right now from the choices that life has presented. The good, the difficult, and everything in between.”

‘I Have Longed To Be Here’ was written and produced by Nicki Wells, with mixing by Luke Potashnick and mastered by Nigel Watson at Edit Suite.

The peaceful and dramatic footage set deep in the mountainous countryside was created and edited by Ananya Tanttu.
