The track is a rearranged version of her 2019 single, ‘Everything Stays', its lyrical themes focus on the desolating feeling that may arise during the end of a relationship. This time, she enlists the help of Bani Hidir and Sara Wee of the band 53A, comedic-musician duo Wokfunk comprising Ben Mah and Billy Chua, and producer/songwriter Nigel Cheah.
Produced by Bani, ‘Everything Stays - Live at the End of the World’ takes on a new life via a pop-punk sound. They first premiered it at the Esplanade’s Outdoor Stage, and the singer-songwriter is still reeling in the night.
In a press release statement, she shared: “We ended the show with 'Everything Stays' and I remember performing it and just feeling the song ring through my veins in a way that I had never really experienced before. It was all that anguish and bitterness from the original heartbreak wrapped up and delivered in a very serendipitous, incredible way.”
The original track released in 2019 was part of her debut EP, Fables. Yap has since gone on to release a handful of singles, as well as her most recent EP release in October of 2021, My period is here, which most notably features Bani Haykal on it.
