'I'll Be There'

If the voice of BEKA seems familiar, then perhaps you've already heard her work.

She's collaborated closely with emphatic pop production duo HONNE, even touring the world with the London pairing.

Yet it's her own work, her own songwriting that inevitably sits closes to her heart, these soulful vignettes that seem to encapsulate her worldview.

The Nottingham singer returns with glorious new single 'I'll Be There', and it's a note of support to someone close.

A superb piece of pop-leaning neo-soul with R&B overtones, the gorgeous vocal has an inspiring, unstoppable feel.

Airing on Clash, we're really touched by it - there's a message of empathy that makes BEKA so enticing.

She explains: "'I''ll Be There' was written for my husband following some tough seasons with depression and anxiety. It was a promise to say I see you... I see you during your highs... I see you during your lows..."

"It's about that human desire we all have for someone to show up for us when we need it most. Whether that person is someone we love, a stranger who gives us a knowing look or even just as a statement of self care - the song is a nod to the reality that part of being human is giving yourself permission to not have it all together. ‘I’ll Be There’ is the message you send to a friend when you don’t know what to say."

Tune in now.
