Amsterdam-based independent artist Naaz returns with an empowering message in her latest single, ‘Uproot,’ delivering a narrative of resilience and hope amidst adversity.

Naaz, a multifaceted Kurdish artist celebrated for her prowess as a songwriter, producer, director, and performer, emerges with ‘Uproot,’ a testament to her journey’s strength and endurance. With an impressive list of accolades, including the ‘Best Videoclip of 2023’ award at the Dutch Filmfestival for AZADÎ and a notable performance supporting Lana Del Rey at the sold-out Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam last July, Naaz stands at the forefront of alternative music.

‘Uproot’ delves into Naaz’s past struggles and restrictive experiences, symbolizing her relentless pursuit of personal growth despite challenging circumstances. The track resonates with themes of feeling trapped, loneliness, and compromising values to survive, yet it triumphantly emphasizes resilience, freedom, and the aspiration to break free from constraints.

Naaz confides:

“The song touches on feelings of being trapped, loneliness, and sometimes having to do things you don’t want to do just to survive. Despite these obstacles, the longing to grow and break free from these constraints remains strong. The song emphasises resilience and the desire for freedom and growth, even if it means temporarily bending or doing things that don’t align with your values so that eventually, you can uproot.”

Accompanying the single is a self-directed short film that humanizes individuals often marginalized, shedding light on the consequences of deviating from societal expectations. Through this song, Naaz encourages embracing unique paths and amplifies stories often unheard, showcasing her personal growth and artistic maturation.

‘Uproot’ is now available, marking another milestone in Naaz’s compelling musical journey.
