Why Not Me EP
By Franky Wah
One of the UK’s biggest breakout dance acts of the past few years, Franky Wah made his Anjunadeep debut earlier this year with ‘Should Have Seen It Coming’, feat. AETHO. The Yorkshireman’s label debut racked up over 30 BBC Radio 1 plays, including a Hottest record accolade from Annie Mac, SiriusXM playlist support, and over 4 million streams in the past 8 months. In 2021 alone, he’s released a string of chart-topping originals, collaborating with some of the biggest names in dance music including Carl Cox, Lee Foss, Cristoph, and Sasha.
Franky Wah now returns with ‘Why Not Me’, his second EP on Anjunadeep, which includes the lead single ‘Bring Me Back To You‘, featuring English singer-songwriter iiola. Supported by BBC Introducing and Complex for her solo material, iiola has made a name for herself in recent years, collaborating with Sub Focus and Wilkinson on their UK Dance #1 album ‘Portals’ and supporting acts such as Nina Nesbitt and Saint Raymond. ‘Bring Me Back To You‘ has already received support from Danny Howard and Sarah Story on BBC Radio 1.
"'Bring Me Back To You' really felt like the perfect follow up to 'Should Have Seen It Coming', lyrically, sentimentally, and also because of the message it stands for. iiola and I had been working on a few different records together but she felt like the perfect addition to this track and Anjuna also stood out as the perfect home. I know iiola actually pulled her car over to Shazam ‘Should Have Seen It Coming’ when she first heard it on BBC Radio 1 so it really feels like it’s all come full circle for the both of us," Franky says.
