Qrion, whose real name is Momiji Tsukada, wrote much of this album while in quarantine, reflecting on her life-changing move from Sapporo, Japan, to San Francisco, California.
In the process, Tsukada connected with her old memories – the feelings of spending time with her father, the time he spent with her family in Japan, and the small but significant moments of her life from his time in Sapporo – and drew inspiration from them. “I believe that music frequently serves as a portal to reminisce about important events in our lives, and in this regard, ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ is a very personal and special album to me. My hope is that my music and this album will become a part of other people’s memories as well – something that they will be able to take with them into the future.”
The album’s first single, titled “Your Love,” features Qrion’s signature pulsating bass, staccato plucks, and evocative vocal chops, all of which are reminiscent of his previous work. Aston Shuffle, 3LAU, and Gorgon City have all supported Tsukada’s acclaimed discography, which includes support from DJs such as Danny Howard at BBC Radio 1 and Jason Bentley at KCRW, as well as prolific producers such as TSHA, Moon Boots, Lane 8, The Aston Shuffle, 3LAU, and Gorgon City. The album’s promotion will see Qrion embark on her own North American headline tour in support of the album following performances with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, Deadmau5, and Tourist.
