“We felt ready to get back into our immense creative process that comes with our work and wanted to make something that would be true to where we are in our lives and careers now,” explains the project's creator and front woman ionnalee (Jonna Lee). “Claes had just become a dad, and I'm carrying a child now. That brought us to a pretty raw state.“

Working with many of the same magicians that brought one of the first viral audio-visual sensations over ten years ago, the anticipation is building for fans. The cryptology and depth of the project is far too extensive for this article but you can read about it on the fandom page.

*Comme des Garçons have dressed iamamiwhoami for the Be Here Soon video series and for ionnalee's past work since 2015.

The coming 10-track album will be released with a 10-episode video series that "traces the path of the new life growing inside of Lee and pushes her out on a journey facing the expectations of society and the music industry as a female artist in the spellbinding surroundings of her native Sweden."
