It's a surprise for fans...

Duffy has shared new song 'Something Beautiful' as a gift for fans.

The Welsh artist shared a shocking, extremely brave statement last month, revealing the reason for her leaving the spotlight.

Revealing that she had been drugged, held hostage, and raped, the powerful statement stunned fans.

Planing to host a Q&A online, Duffy sent new song 'Something Beautiful' to Radio 2's Jo Whiley as a gift for those self-isolating.

She said: “You may have read the words I wrote a few weeks back, I do feel freer. Tried to follow up with a spoken interview, but it’s harder than I thought, I will follow up in writing soon.”

Duffy continued: “Universal Music, no one, knows I am doing this. They won’t be mad, they are lovely people. So here’s a song … here’s ‘Something Beautiful’. It’s just something for you to play people on radio during these troubling times, if you like the song of course. If it lifts spirits.”

She finished: “I don’t plan to release it, I just thought a little something might be nice for people if they are at home, on lockdown.”

Hi Jo (Whiley) Hope you are well and keeping safe. Wanted to send you this to play on the radio, if you want. You may have read the words I wrote a few weeks back, I do feel freer. Tried to follow up with a spoken interview, but it’s harder than I thought, I will follow up in writing soon. Universal Music & no one knows I am doing this. They won’t be mad, they are lovely people. So here’s a song … here’s “Something Beautiful”. It’s just something for you to play people on radio during these troubling times, if you like the song of course. If it lifts spirits. I don’t plan to release it, I just thought a little something might be nice for people if they are at home, on lockdown. Duffy x
