Narelle Kheng‘s three-part anthology film which she started in 2019 to chronicle the different phases of her trajectory as a musical artiste has reached its climax.
Unveiling from January 26, the final, multi-disciplinary segment to the project includes the pop-rock track Just Shut Up, which boasts an off-kilter lyric video starring the singer and a biohazard bag in a camper van.

But it is the girlhood-focused anthology film that she had co-conceptualised with some of Singapore’s most promising female talents, that truly underscores the collective effort that goes into creating music.
She says: “Whatever they added was tasteful and thoughtful and I feel that the bonds that we created through working together will be lasting. That’s what I really want to drive home: Making music is not only about quantifiable results or answering to a corporate entity.”
Ahead, Kheng shares her admiration and respect for seven of these close collaborators.
