Japanese DJ and producer Qrion is proud to release her debut album ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’, out now on all available platforms via Anjunadeep.
The album arrives after the release of three electrifying singles; ‘Your Love’, ‘11-11’, and ‘Proud’, all of which have been championed by the likes of radio heavyweights such as Pete Tong, Danny Howard, and Jason Bentley, as well as tastemaker DJs like Diplo, Mall Grab, Porter Robinson, Lane 8, Anna Lunoe, Solomun, and Todd Edwards.
An album built on nostalgia and sentimentality, ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ pays homage to Qrion’s memories of childhood and captures the feelings she felt when moving from her hometown of Sapporo to San Francisco to pursue a career in music. Speaking on the album, Qrion exclaims “I connected with my old memories – the feelings of spending time with my Dad, the time I lived with my family in Japan, and the small but important moments of my life from my life in Sapporo.”
‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ is the latest triumph in a career that’s seen Qrion release on Mad Decent, Last Night on Earth, and This Never Happened. More recently, Qrion has been named Spotify Japan’s EQUAL Artist of November, DJ Mag’s Future Star of 2021, and the resident artist for 88Rising Radio on SiriusXM, whilst garnering support from the likes of Mixmag, Attack Magazine, Forbes, and Triple J.
Having shared the stage with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, Deadmau5, and Tourist, Qrion now takes to the road with her own headline tour across North America in support of the album.
