After years of being a staple in Australia's R&B scene, Soli's highly-anticipated EP Daily Thoughts has arrived.

The smooth and soulful six-track EP boasts production credits from Hamley (PANIA), Aldwin Cajili (RINI), 5am and Iconic Beats. Listeners can expect to be immersed into a world of rich vocals and sliky production, with the EP's lyrical themes ranging from self-love to mental health and gratitude.

Speaking of the EP Soli says, "I've really enjoyed tapping into my R&B and Afrobeat influences, as well as stripping things back with more acoustic vocal performances. I take listeners on quite an emotional rollercoaster with this EP."

Soli tells Complex AU that the EP was close to three years in the making. "This EP means everything, it's my baby. Some tracks I wrote balling my eyes out in my room, others I wrote from a place of pure joy, but all six tracks have come from a very real and vulnerable place and I pray it impacts people."

The EP release marks solid close to what has been phenomenal year for the Melbourne-based, Ethiopian singer. In 2023 she picked up an APRA award, opened for Masego and Adekunle Gold, toured with Macklemore as an official backing vocalist in the EU and UK, and sold out her first headline show.

You can stream Daily Thoughts on all platforms from today.
