Milan Ring offers up a powerful reflection on life, interspersing Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements into her lyrics

Celebrated Eora/Sydney R&B artist, producer, and engineer Milan Ring is embracing a new era with the announcement of her love-infused second studio album, ‘Mangos.’

Set to release on May 10 via Astral People Recordings, the album is preceded by the release of her latest single, ‘Photograph,’ out today.

In a moment of pure bliss within the album, ‘Photograph’ transports listeners into a trip-inspired narrative, celebrating the sheer joy of being with someone special.

Milan injects wisdom from Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements into the lyrics, offering a powerful reflection on experiencing life to the fullest.

Milan shares, “In a world of instant gratification, the anticipation of waiting for a photograph to develop becomes a metaphor for savouring the moment.”

‘Mangos’ represents Milan Ring’s radiant embrace of summer, traversing genres from alt-pop to electronica while staying rooted in R&B.

A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, Milan invites listeners to surrender to love as she embarks on a universal yet uniquely personal journey through relationships.

With experimental mixing, intricate string arrangements, and voice memos from friends, the album unfolds like a scrapbook, capturing the evolution of love across seasons.

Crafted entirely in her home studio on Gadigal Land in Sydney, Mangos showcases Milan’s authenticity and draws inspiration from her reflections on love, nature, and the human experience.

Despite exploring new musical territories, Milan maintains a cohesive sound, blending her heritage with forward-thinking compositions.

Building upon the success of her previous singles ‘Mangos’ and ‘Quicksand,’ which garnered praise from media outlets worldwide, ‘Mangos’ promises to be Milan’s most captivating work to date.
