BBC Sound Of 2020 winner Celeste has shared her new single 'Little Runaway'.
Out now, the single is about a crisis of faith, and features a towering vocal from the London artist.
A song about succumbing to the depths before emerging renewed, 'Little Runaway' began as a jazz sample, before taking on a life of its own.
“‘Little Runaway’ is a song about losing your faith, even if just momentarily, and seeking answers from spirits and ghosts as nothing seems to make sense on this planet. My favourite line in the song is ‘good news I could use some’ – I believe everyone has a guardian angel, a protector, and this is me talking to mine.”
“The verses actually started as this saxophone sample we were playing around with and eventually it transformed into the melody. I always play the sax back in my head even though it’s not in the song.”
'Little Runaway' features an innovative music video, steered by Celeste’s frequent collaborator Sophie Jones.
