Song of the Day: Cruel – Jessica Wilde

The third single taken from Wilde’s debut album, out later this year, ‘Cruel’ signals her delving back into her first love, a toxic relationship that inspired a harnessing of her bisexual identity but also led her to addiction – a subject she’s tackling on her debut album.

Co-produced with producer Jay Nebular and Grammy award winning producer Kiris Houston who have worked heavily with the likes of The Disciples and Little Mix, ‘Cruel’ has a nice lazy summer haze 90’s classic hip-hop and R&B vibe where Jessica is at her most cutesy, sultry but equally dangerous as her lyrics offer a little sting in the tail. The official visual tracks Jess wandering South London, paying homage to a nostalgic look & flava, shot on disposable cameras and VHS, it gives an authentic feel, themed throughout the album.

Song of the Day: Cologne – Kat Deal

North London singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist KAT DEAL first burst unto the scene in late 2016 with her critically acclaimed debut single ‘Staring Back At Me’, which was supported by Clash Magazine, BBC Radio 2, Spotify, The 405, Record Of The Day, BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing, among others. Now she’s here, stealing NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Song of the Day spot with the slamming R&B jam ‘Cologne’, the first single from her forthcoming debut EP, which is set to be released in February 2019.

Produced by fast-rising Turkish beatsmith and musician Baker Aaron, who has previously worked with the likes of Nick Brewer, Kadeem Tyrell and Naomi Scott, ‘Cologne’ is an infectious and energetic offering, backed by lush instrumentation and clever musicianship, from the smooth bass guitar play to the catchy synth keys to the clever beat switch in the bridge. KAT DEAL holds these all together perfectly, with her commanding vocal display, glorious melodies and lyrical offering.

With a well-versed musical pedigree as a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and arranger that has seen her tour the world, playing for Robbie Williams, Felix Jaehn, Eliza And The Bear and Jodie Abacus, among others, KAT DEAL is excited to take center stage with her own music, which can be described as modern alternative R&B-Pop with a 90s slant, and is defined by her use of lush 80s synths, 90s inspired melodies, honest and relatable lyricism, and her unmistakably powerful voice.
