Local singer, Linying, collabs with Birds of Paradise in lieu of her new single release

It’s not often we hear the release of a new song being followed by a collaboration announcement with local ice cream brands. I thought it was a combination that all of us probably wouldn’t immediately associate with the other, but local singer-songwriter Linying is proving me wrong on that count. In celebration of the release of her latest single, Springtime, well-loved, local ice cream brand Birds of Paradise has launched a limited edition flavour.

Aptly named Springtime Red Berries Ginger Bloom (S$17/pint), Birds of Paradise’s latest flavour is a pastel-pink mix of red currants, tangy raspberries and strawberries. It’s flavour profile is elevated with fragrant torch ginger flower in a house-cooked rhubarb jam.

Torch ginger flower, also known as bunga kantan in Malay, will give the gelato a herbaceous kick to set it apart from regular gelato, and is commonly found in our comfort foods such as asam laksa, rojak, and nasi ulam. This gelato is multi-dimensional, complex, and the perfect accompaniment to Linying’s newest single of the same name.

The packaging on the Springtime Red Berries Ginger Bloom pint was also designed specifically to match the cover for Linying’s single—with gold accents, colourful flora and fauna, and gentle candlelight, lovingly done by the singer herself. What better way to enjoy a scoop of gelato with Springtime playing in the background?

Springtime Red Berries Ginger Bloom is available for purchase on the Birds of Paradise site for delivery orders, and in stores. Linying is also urging her followers to use the Springtime sound on TikTok, and will be compiling it into the Springtime music video. Top three submissions will receive a pint of gelato from the artist herself.

If you’re a more-than-one-pint kinda gal just like me, Birds of Paradise’s Midnight Gianduja (S$20/pint) might follow your order of Springtime. Make your cheat day worth it with Italian hazelnuts and dark chocolate, or go all out with something lighter but no less decadent, the Sea Salt Hojicha (S$17). It’ll be worth all the extra calories, I promise.
