Laeticia’s fears of rejection are on full display in a funk-forward sonic exploration that sees her stand up for herself even though others want her to change.

Japan, Man, the innovative alt-pop project fronted by Lebanon-born Laeticia Acra, has released her third single of 2023. Follow-up to ‘Nowhere To Hide,’ ‘Wormhole’ is a funk-forward track that pushes well beyond four minutes of runtime.

Sharing more Laeticia describes her younger self:

“I grew up with a hesitation to socialize, and I felt like whenever I did manage to keep a friend around, the fear of them leaving was always apparent, it was like a bomb waiting to go off.” She continues, “The way you can jump through a wormhole, figuratively, to alter your personality to survive socially is exhausting, but sometimes so necessary to get by. I’d stay in horrible, isolating social situations, just to feel surrounded. I could’ve been surrounded by statues, and I would have been satisfied. Personal growth takes so much time. It took me years to get over this, but when I did, I actually felt like there was substance in my friendships and relationships.”

‘Wormhole’ is out now.
