New year, new beginnings. At least for Tiffany Young, whose newly-released “Born Again” (out today, Jan. 25) is an anthem about her personal revival after enduring longterm struggles. Young also revealed that her upcoming Lips on Lips EP is set to drop on Feb. 22; it will be accompanied by an already-planned tour of the same name.
Young’s lush new pop song explores her reorientation of her sense of self on both personal and career levels, following her Stateside shift after over a decade in the K-pop world as a member of Girls’ Generation. "So bad it should be forbidden. So good, so deep, I feel it. I’m reborn,” she sings over a soaring melody. “Your love is like a higher power. I’m born, I’m born, I’m born again, again.”
At first glance, it’s a love song about being revitalized by a relationship, but in a press release, the singer expressed that the track's release marks a "very emotional and personal journey inspired by all the tragedy and pain I’ve had to mask with a smile throughout my career,” referring to her early career as part of one of the world’s most popular, and busy, girl groups, and difficulties relating to her father’s outstanding debts.
