New Track: Always Been This Way – Kit Rice

With the release of his debut album ‘Konfidence’ drawing closer, British singer/songwriter KIT RICE  continues to tease us with latest single ‘Always Been This Way’.

Following on from the groovy funk of ‘Dance All Night’ and the power ballad ‘Just A Kiss’, the new single is an emotive strings-led soulful/R&B esque offering, which sees the South Londoner at his most vulnerable, while still retaining those well-controlled harmonies.

Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Always Been This Way’, the BRIT School alumni says, “The record is about letting go. It was one of the hardest songs to write on this album because it is so personal. I like to live my life through love & light, but sometimes people take me for granted. When that happens, I have to let go. Life is hard enough! You need people helping you push the cart uphill. If someone is sitting in it and weighing you down, you have to let go and most times it’s a hard decision to make! But you have to look after yourself first. Don’t let people weigh you down! Live your best life”.

‘Always Been This Way’ is the third release from the album  ‘Konfidence’, out 25th June via KAR Records/AWAL. It’s too good to pass by; better have a listen…

Song of the Day: Just A Kiss – Kit Rice

Following the announcement of his forthcoming debut album Konfidence, due on June 25 via KAR Records/AWAL, and the release of its lead single ‘Dance All Night’, which has been met with rave reviews, fast-rising London singer, songwriter and musician, and BRIT School alumni KIT RICE follows up with a brand new offering titled ‘Just A Kiss’, the second single from his Konfidence album.

Coming on the back of recent support from BBC Radio 1, Music Week, Kiss FM, Capital Xtra, BBC 1Xtra, Complex, MTV UK and Digital Spy in recent years, KIT RICE has started 2018 in spectaclur fashion – first with ‘Dance All Night’ and its UKG remix from longtime collaborator and UK Garage veteran DJ Fen, which have been supported by the likes of Fame Magazine, ILUVLIVE and UMA Music, among others.

The Beckenham native and former The Voice UK contestant continues his streak with his brand new single ‘Just A Kiss’, which was written and produced by Kit himself, with Nigel Walton, who has worked with Basement Jaxx, Krept & Konan and Bloc Party, mastering the record. The piano-led ballad is a complete detour from the groovy funk of ‘Dance All Night’, but it perfectly showcases Kit’s amazing vocals and songwriting, which carry the record throughout.
