A live recording of the performance accompanied the release, uploaded on Lim’s YouTube channel on the 14th of April. The entirety of the project was filmed and recorded at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, and features a star-studded band line-up in organist/keyboardist Chok Kerong, drummer Soh Wen Ming, and Euntaek Kim on guitar and bass.

As the singer-songwriter often does live, Lim and his band will perform new takes on previously released tracks ‘Least of You’ and ‘Zero-Sum’.

“The last time we played in this configuration also happened to be our last tour in Japan before lockdown started”, shared Lim in a press release statement.

"Playing these arrangements and mixing the EP during post-production was incredibly nostalgic and bittersweet. It’s been way too long since we could do a proper live show, so hopefully this will be a nice stopgap for everyone before we can start playing and touring again.”

Prior to this, Lim released two full-length albums in TIME/SPACE, and CHECK-HOOK. Late last year, he won the National Arts Council’s ‘Young Artist’ award, which recognises artists for their contribution to Singapore’s arts and cultural landscapes.
