DELILAH MONTAGU RELEASES 9-TRACK PROJECT “BABY”, COLLABORATES WITH BENJY, FRED AGAIN… AND TOWA BIRD
July 23, 2021
“Woozy and glowing, but the London pop star packs seemingly endless, subtly insistent hooks into this surrender from a relationship’s dying days” – The Guardian
“The hotly tipped singer combines vocal nuance and restraint, nagging hooks, languorous slow-disco grooves and candid lyrics, with beautiful results” – The Sunday Times
London based singer/songwriter Delilah Montagu today releases the 9-track ‘Baby’ EP via Columbia Records/Epic Records US. ‘Baby’ marks the 23 year-old’s third EP and signals a sonic departure from the brooding and melancholic ‘This Is Not A Love Song’.
Produced by Benjy Gibson, the EP steers away from the autobiographical nature of her previous releases, instead creating characters in a hedonistic, passion-fuelled fantasy world that the pair lived vicariously through as the world was at a standstill. The EP features additional production work by Benjy Gibson’s brother, BRIT Award winning producer Fred again.. on opening track ‘BABY’, as well as guitar lines from Billie-Eilish approved TikTok sensation Towa Bird on ‘Coming For Ya’.
Current single ‘Coming For Ya’ sees Delilah embrace a new sense of self and freedom as she becomes the narrator on this project born out of lockdown isolation. Delilah discovers a new acceptance in her own sexuality, whilst in the official video she explores real life couples of all sexualities and backgrounds; “I’ve had girlfriends and boyfriends, but I don’t identify strongly with being gay, straight or bisexual”, says Delilah. “I now know that this fluidity can be freeing. It doesn’t mean I’m confused and I don’t need a label”.
Above all, Delilah’s new EP ‘Baby’ is about freedom, feeling and taking back control of your happiness. “There’s been a huge shift for me in my ability to express myself,” says Delilah. “I used to be so afraid of being a woman, ashamed of feeling sexual, scared of falling in love, but I’m embracing it all with this EP.”
