UK soul singer and BBC Sound of 2020 winner Celeste has released her new single Little Runaway, out now on Polydor Records.

The song features brilliant piano work, powerful vocals, memorable hooks, and soulful sounds.

Lyrically, Celeste remains honest. Her lyrics capture her thoughts. Every line in the song is golden.

“Dreaming of a life
Everybody got something

Staring at the sky

I don’t see nothing falling

Thinking on my prayers
Maybe they were all misplaced”

Speaking about the new track, the artist says reveals, ”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.”

The music video captures the spirit of the song. It was directed by Celeste’s frequent collaborator Sophie Jones.

Celeste continues to deliver good music. She speaks the language of art. Little Runaway deserves to be heard. What an iconic piece of work!
