Both tracks are included on newly-announced EP, Morning Matters, out 27th March. The EP pairs candid songwriting with a laid-back, graceful delivery and is, as Lacey explains; “dedicated to anyone that’s ever struggled with getting up and out in the morning, for everyone doing work on themselves and trying to live better.” Contributors include Femi Koleoso and Ife Ogunjobi of Ezra Collective, plus jazz protege Moses Boyd. Yazmin Lacey didn’t set out to be a singer, however a chance encounter lead to her earning a place on Future Bubblers - Gilles Peterson’s development programme devoted to discovering and nurturing UK talent.

The more polished When The Sun Dips 90 Degrees EP followed in 2018 and includes standout single Something My Heart Trusts, which has clocked up over 4.4 million plays on Spotify.
