October 29th, 2021 – Beijing – Global superstar Lay Zhang officially releases his new EP, “EAST”, today on all streaming platforms. The EP contains four songs, “Flying Apsaras”, “Samadhi Real Fire”, “Ascetic Monk” and “The Shepherd Boy”, among which “Flying Apsaras” being the lead track. East begins with ethereal chanting, then set off by a deep bass with rapid rhythmic trap hi-hats. LAY’s new display of his M-POP style will undoubtedly generate buzz with his fans across the world.


“EAST” signifies the identification of a part of the world, the stylistic symbol to which M-POP follows, as well as the spiritual origin for LAY’s growth. With “EAST” as his foundation, Lay Zhang embarks on a new musical journey, incorporating reverse chronology as a narrative method to build a story. It is a spiritual journey with oriental elements unfolding. It starts with realizing the dream of the “Flying Apsaras”, to the baptism through “Samadhi Real Fire”, and then experiencing an epiphany as a “Ascetic Monk”, and ultimately returning to the innocence of a “The Shepherd Boy”.


Lay Zhang has placed the realization of the dream at the beginning of the “reverse journey to the East”, where the “Flying Apsaras” represents both his dream as a musician and a nation’s aspiration. From Chang’e to space navigation, from mythology to reality, from individuals to a nation, “all the disregard and mockery will be in vain.” Dreams are advanced step by step, and like the ever-flowing beat arranged by Lay Zhang, the progress will never come to a halt.


Lay Zhang has facilitated the development of various philanthropic endeavors inspired by the album. This includes the launch of his “Flying Apsaras Charity Initiative”. Through “From Flying Apsaras to Tomorrow”, donations were made to 7 schools in Guizhou. In addition, Lay Zhang has supported the cultural heritage research in Western through the “Traveling across the Universe with the Heart Facing East” initiative and “Enthusiasm & Love 21-day Challenge.”


Since ancient times, the Chinese have always dreamed of flying to the sky like a “Flying Apsaras”. The dream is now presented through Lay Zhang and his music.
